elementary school students in math. 


Alpha Epsilon Delta, whose members volunteered at a

got students involved in actvities. 


Wildcat victories, such as the football team's 10-9 victory 
over KU, gave both students and athletes a reason for 
displaying their purple pride. 


Summer flooding wreaked havoc on student housing as 
displaced families rented local apartments, leaving some

Although officials greased the 
goal posts prior to the football 
game to keep students from 
tearing them down, both goal 
posts were down within 20 
minutes. Students carried the 
posts down Manhattan Avenue 
to Aggieville, where Riley

he wind blew gently out of the 
north as the sun shined on the faces 
of football fans. The sky was clear 
for the first football game of the 
season, and the path was clear for the 
team to make history. 

With the beginning of school 
came the start of football season. A 
team that four years ago had trouble 
drawing fans now had more than 
25,000 people attending the season 
opener against the New Mexico 
State Aggies. 

"I've waited all summer for this," 
said Kevin Wiltse, junior in 
agronomy. "It's finally here." 

Opening day also kicked off tail- 
gate season. Cars poured into Man- 
hattan and crowded into the KSU 
Stadium parking lot two hours be- 
fore game time. The fans began un- 
loading grills and putting up purple

One Manhattan resident couldn't 
believe how many people traveled 
to attend the game. 

"The traffic today is horrible,"

Footballs spiraled through the air 
as the fans' excitement grew. 
"Wabash Cannonball," a Wildcat 
spirit song, echoed through the park- 
ing lot as fans prepared for the game. 

Various Catbacker groups com- 
peted against each other to see who 
had the most Wildcat spirit. Com- 
petitions ranging from Best Menu 
to Best Turnout to Most Spirit filled 
the supporters' day. 

"I was here (at a game) before,

because they had confidence in the 
team and the new starting quarter- 
back, Chad May.

five, and two wins on the road," said 
alumnus Joe Lask, who traveled

he pulsating "whop-whop" sound 
of UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters 
intensified as they came in for a 
landing on the KSU Stadium park- 
ing lot. 

The 23 students of the ROTC 
Ranger Company went airborne 
April 17, 1993, to spend the next 30 
hours in the field-training exercise, 

"The main purpose of the week- 
end was to put all of the Rangers' 
technical knowledge to the test," 
said John Highfill, Ranger com- 
mander and senior in engineering 

The FTX provided the group 
training as well as goals to strive 

"The students are trained in light 
infantry tactics," said Dave Almquist, 
Ranger executive officer and senior 
in animal sciences and industry. "The 
goal of the operation is to develop 
leadership skills, which are crucial to 
all military officers." 

The FTX started with an air inser- 
tion to the training site, courtesy of 
three Blackhawk helicopters. The 
students later performed boat op- 
erations, using two RB-15 Zodiac 
Commando Assault Boats, and took 
a 10-km foot march with a 45- 
pound rucksack. They finished with 
an air insertion back to the KSU 
Stadium parking lot. 

"When we train the Rangers, we 
train realistically," Highfill said. "We 
also outfitted the Rangers in the 
Multiple Integrated Laser Engage- 
ment System, MILES, for the FTX. 
The MILES is the military's form of 
laser warfare, which also adds an 
extra sense of realism to field train-

cope with a variety of situations and 
how to best lead your troops to 
accomplish the mission," said Ben 
Kearns, junior in sociology. 

The Rangers had a wide variety of 
missions to accomplish. 

"The Rangers were first given a 
mission to destroy an enemy radio 
station, secure a docking area and set 
up a defensive position for a possible 
enemy attack," Highfill said. "The 
only problem was all three missions 
had to be performed simulta- 

Later, Rangers used RB-15 as- 
sault boats to conduct a combat 
amphibious landing on the shore of 
Milford Lake to position themselves 
for an assault on the enemy. 

The Rangers' enemy was known 
as the opposing forces, OPFOR. 

"The OPFOR is mainly com- 
posed of volunteer basic course ca- 
dets who have a specific mission to 
harass and test the Rangers' combat 

effectiveness," Highfill said. "They 
ensure that the training is as realistic 
as possible." 

Many of the tactics the OPFOR 
used made Rangers keenly aware of 
the importance of the field training. 

"Even though all of the tasks con- 
ducted at the FTX were light infan- 
try-based, everyone improves their 
leadership abilities under the high- 
stress, fast-action scenarios against 
the OPFOR," said Steve O'Neil, 
senior Ranger evaluator and senior 
in management. 

Ranger Company cadets learned 
necessary skills for their future com- 
mission as armed forces officers. This 
goal was achieved with the help of 
Fort Riley Army post. 

"Very few active duty units in the 
Army can conduct a 30-hour train- 
ing exercise using as many different 
assets as we did," O'Neil said. "We 
have an advantage of the coopera- 
tion of Fort Riley to perform some 
complex field operation scenarios."

flood waters 
invade Manhattan 

Water rushes out of the Tuttle Creek 
spillway July 19. The second day the 
spillway gates were opened 8 inches 
each, releasing about 20,000 cubic feet 
of water per second. When the gates 
were closed Aug. 9, the land south of the 
spillway had been worn away by the 
rushing water. (Photo by Cary Conover) 

truck plowed through a frothy pool 
of filthy brown water, fighting to 
keep safe in the wake of the 
vehicle in front of it. Water rolled 
away to either side of its bumper, a 
determined ar- 
row washing 
over everything 
in its path. The 
truck shuddered, 
threatening to 
stall and leave the 
antique chair in 
the back stranded 
in the middle of 
flooded streets. 

Trucks piled 
with belongings, 
making their 
way through the 
perpetually ris- 
ing water, be- 
came a common 
occurrence as 
flood victims 
transported their 
possessions out 
of harms way. 

News of the 
flooding in 
Manhattan came 
as a shock to Ted 
Kadau, senior in 
journalism and 
mass communi- 

cations. Kadau, who had been in- 
terning in Arkansas City, learned his 
trailer park was being evacuated 

by Trina Holmes 

while listening to KMKF-FM 101.5 
at his girlfriend's house. 

The next day, July 19, Kadau 
and 15 other North Crest trailer 
park residents filled sandbags. 

"I wanted to help," Kadau said. 
"There were people sandbagging 
who didn't live here. When some- 
thing like this happens, although 
you're not from Manhattan, you 
want to help people." 

Kadau found sandbagging his 
own trailer futile. This realization 
forced him to put his valuables as far 
ofFthe floor as possible and leave the 
rest to chance. 

"The reason floods suck so bad is 
you don't know what the hell to 
do," Kadau said. "I mean, with a 
tornado you know it's coming and 
half an hour later it's gone. With a 
snowstorm, it comes and goes away. 
A flood creeps toward you inch by 
inch and when it hits you, it ruins all 
you have and there's nothing you 
can do about it." 

Residents weren't the only ones 
battling against the flood. At the 
Linear Park Blue River Access Rec- 
reation Area, city employees tried to 
keep the flood waters out of down- 
town Manhattan by building a sand- 
bag dam across a gap in the levy 
made by railroad tracks. 

"Most of the city workers have 
stopped doing their regular duties," 
said Terry Irwin, senior in industrial

engineering. "We've worked on 
drains because they were flooding 
and then came straight out here." 

Irwin's job with the city's traffic 
department drastically changed, 
along with his hours. 

"The scariest part was when I got 
called in late at night a couple of 
times to fix sewer pumps," Irwin 
said. "It was lightning and raining 
— not real fun." 

Manhattan residents joined the 
city employees in the late night war 
with water. For some, battling the 
elements into the wee hours of: the 
morning was the only way they 
could save their possessions and sal- 
vage their homes. 

"The first night we sandbagged, 
it rained all night," said Diana Lewis, 
freshman in fine arts. "With the 
wind blowing, it was really a good 
way to catch a cold." 

Protecting their possessions was 
easier for the Lewis family than 
others. Because Garland Lewis was 
the information processing director 
for KSU Housing and Dining Ser- 

vices, he was allowed to use K-State 
trucks to transport their belongings 
to a warehouse and different friends' 
houses. Although their possessions 
were safe, they worried about their 
home on Violet Circle. 

"We've always lived in this 
house," said Rachael Lewis, junior 
in business administration. "My par- 
ents have been here for 20 years." 

The Lewis family had seen mild 
flooding in their area before, but 
nothing like the water that prompted 
carloads of volunteer sandbaggers to 
pour into their neighborhood. 

"It always floods in the farmer's 
field out back when they open the 
tubes, but it's never affected our 
house before. In some places in our 
backyard, the water's 10 feet deep 
and then in some places it's only 1 
foot deep. Usually there's a little 
river behind our house, but nothing 
like that," Diana Lewis said, gestur- 
ing toward the sea of water tempo-

in modern lan- 
guages, the se- 
verity of the 
newly homeless' 
situation came to 
life when he vol- 
unteered to help 
those staying in 
the Union. 
"When you read or hear stories 
about the flood, it's sensationalized," 
Wissman said. "When you're here 
(in the Union) you see it's not like 
summer camp — it's a real-life situ- 
ation. You want to do all that's 
possible, but there are limitations . All 
you can do is keep people calm and 
assured that they'll get through this." 

"The reason floods suck so bad is you 
don't know what the hell to do. I mean, 
with a tornado you know its coming 
and half an hour later its gone. With a 
snowstorm, it comes and goes away. A 
flood creeps toward you inch by inch 
and when it hits you, it ruins all you 
have and there's nothing you can do 

about it."

Students flock to the Union 

Courtyard for two days 
of competition

he two faced off, glaring at each 
other across the space between their 
platforms. They tensed, each ea- 
gerly waiting for an opportunity to 
knock the other into the gaping 
hole that led to a giant mat 5 feet 
below. Behind their headgear, their 
eyes narrowed as they waited for the 
starting signal. In a flash of red and 
blue, they began pummeling each 
other until a lone figure remained 
standing — victorious. 

This was not a TV show, and the 
two participants were not acton. They 
were students 
yearning for the 
title of Sports Fes- 
tival Champion at 
Campus Fest Oct. 

"This is the 
first year for the 
Sports Illustrated 
Sports Festival," 
said Kurt Ruth- 
erford, assistant 
manager of the 
Market Source 
Company based 
in New Jersey. 
"It's for students 
to have fun. 
We're interested 
in getting our 
11-12 sponsors' names out to col- 
lege students " 

The Sports Festival consisted of 
seven events: hot shots, pressure 
points, joust-a-bout, power alley, 
the Bungee run, quarterback chal-

lenge and the power drive. 

"My favorite event was the foot- 
ball throw (quarterback challenge) 
because that's the one I did the best 
on," said Gregg Coup, freshman in 
pre-health professions. 

For many, the competitions 
passed time between classes. They 
weren't looking to become cham- 
pions; theyjust wanted to have fun. 

"I walked by after class, thought 
it looked cool, and asked these guys 
if they wanted to do it," said Ben 
Warta, freshman in pre-health pro- 

Both women and men were 
encouraged to participate in the 
sporting events. However, accord- 
ing to a Market Source employee, 
the ratio of female to male contes- 
tants was about l-to-25. 

Unathletic students also enjoyed 
the festival. Vendors gave away free 
candy bars, ice cream and athletic 
apparel. Some of these freebies were 
accompanied by non-contact games 
for students to play. 

"I had fun playing the croquet 
game and got a Reese's out of it," 
saidjean Millerjunior in pre-physi- 
cal therapy. "I'm hustling over to 
where they are giving out the ice 
cream next." 

The spectators drew more stu- 
dents to Campus Fest. 

"It's entertaining," said Lauren 
Jones, sophomore in psychology. "I 
like to watch the gladiators get 
knocked down. It's a fun thing to do 
between classes."

hether they had dreams of buy- 
ing a new car or paying the bills, 
some students had aspirations of 
striking it rich. 

Dave Diederich, sophomore in 
elementary education, said he often 
made late-night study-break runs to 
the Mini-Mart Convenience Store, 
1 102 Laramie, to buy lottery tickets 
and food to munch on. 

Diederich said he played a vari- 
ety of lottery games throughout the 
year, including Powerball, Scratch- 
n-Win and Club Keno. 

"Every so often, if I would hear 
on the news about someone win- 
ning, I would play it (the lottery) 
more," he said. "It kinda sparked 
my interest." 

Diederich said he bought his 
tickets one at a time, so he didn't feel 
like he was wasting his money. 

"If you space buying the tickets 
out, you don't notice how much 
money you spend," he said. "I usu- 
ally buy about three a week and 
spend about $20 a month. It's (play- 

ing the lottery) a nice study break." 

Zac Carlon, freshman in me- 
chanical engineering, said he played 
the lottery because he believed it 
would eventually pay off. 

"I play 'cause one of these days I 
will win, and I can pay for my 
college," Carlon said. 

Bill Tanner, junior in pre-op- 
tometry, won $4,000 playing quick- 
pick Keno at The Chicago Bar & 
Grill Oct. 10. 

Tanner had played Club Keno 
only two times before and lost. The 
Kansas Lottery reported that only 45 
percent of Club Keno players won. 

Tanner said he put his new- 
found fortune to good use. 

"I put a little (money) in the 
bank," he said. "I paid off a credit 
card bill, and I did a little shopping. " 

Deiderich planned to keep play- 
ing the lottery because he wanted to 
become rich. 

"Sooner or later, I'll win," he said. 
"I've never won anything, so I Bgure 
one of these days I'll hit it big."

he Dan Peterson family used their 
nppling fields of golden wheat to 
showcase causes close to their hearts. 

They have planted messages on 
their land in Burdiek, Kan., for four 
years. Their farm was part of the 
proposed Fort Riley expansion in 
1990. Inspired by tanners who used 
crop art to design creative messages, 
the Petersons said they had stumbled 
on a way to help the grassroots 
campaign to "Preserve the Heart- 
land." They designed this slogan to 
show their opposition to the expan- 
sion, which was eventually voted 

"There were aircraft and heli- 
copters flying overhead to survey 
the area, so this was a way to make 
our point and impact those looking 
at this area," said JefF Peterson, se- 
nior in animal sciences and industry. 

Aerial photographs taken by at- 
torney Charles Rayl were picked up 
by the Associated Press and carried 
nationwide in newspapers. 

"It (the field art) appealed to the 
public, "Jeff said. "People noticed it 
who weren't even involved with 
this grassroots movement." 

After the family's second year of 
producing crop art, Jeff joined his 
parents in deciding the ideas to show- 

"Jeff was really the one who got 
me going on doing something for 

K-State," Dan said. "K-State has 
been so great for him, and we're a 
K-State family." 

Dan, a 1969 graduate, met his 
wife, Linda, during her freshman 
year. They married in 1968, and 
Linda left after her second semester 
to assist Dan on the farm. Oldest 
daughter Susie obtained her elemen- 
tary education 
degree in 1991 
after three years 
at K-State. 

Jeff came up 
with the idea for 
"K-State Makes 
Life Great," a 
message accom- 
panied with the 
K-State football 
logo, in 1992. 
He was looking 
for a way to 
thank the Uni- 
versity for pro- 
viding him op- 
portunities and 

He was also 
thankful that campus buildings were 
handicapped accessible. A paraple- 
gic since an accident his freshman 
year in high school, JefF was thrilled 
to find a university willing to meet 
his challenges.

"I'm not saying everything was 
perfect when I got here, but they 
were willing to work with me," he 
said. "The key to it all is that they are 
willing to change classes for accessi- 
bility. I enrolled in an art class and 
there was no way I could get into the 
Art Building, so they moved the 
class to an accessible building." 

Equally grateful to the Univer- 
sity for accommodating Jeff, Dan 
helped his son give something back. 
Talk began during the fall semester 
ofjeffs senior year. He started look- 
ing for a way to show K-State and 
Future Fanners of America how 
much they meant to him. He finally 
decided on "FFA - Leadership for 
America," for 1994's theme. 

The family spent a few hours 
drawing the design at the kitchen 
table. After the regular crops were 
planted, the Petersons planted the 
field art Oct. 22. 

"We spend six to eight hours 

staking it out and another two plant- 
ing it," Dan said. 

The day set aside for staking the 
field art required Jeff to make a trip 
home. Using a modified all-terrain 
vehicle, he assisted his father in 
measuring out the designed area and 
placing the flags. Using a tractor 
with a 13-foot drill, the Petersons 
planted leftover wheat from their 
regular crops. 

Jeff was responsible for the mow- 
ing around the design letters and 
managing the upkeep until the planes 
flew over the field art in the summer. 

"We usually get the best contrast 
in June when the wheat is golden 
with dark brown dirt as the con- 
trast," Dan said. 

However, the view seen in sum- 
mer 1994 may be the last. 

"We never intended this to grow 
and go this far," Dan said. "As for 
next year, it (the theme) will have to 
be something I believe in and feel 
strongly about." 

"Jeff was really the 
one who got me 
going on doing 
something for 
K-State. K-State has 
been so great for 
him, and we're a 

K-State family."

Listeners crowd 

Union Art Gallery 

to hear poetry 

by Claudette Riley 

tudents came to share, listen 
and learn. 
On the first Monday of each 
month, students poured into the 
Union Art Gallery for an evening of 
Poetry Reading sponsored by the 
Union Program Council. 

"The idea started out with the 
student art show, then developed 
into a way to combine poetry with 
student art," said Michael Ott, UPC 
chairman for development of the 
arts and senior in psychology. 

The audience sat in a circle, which 
formed an informal stage for the 
speakers. Refreshments were served, 
and the first speaker went to the 
circle's center to begin. 

Presenting their own work, stu- 
dents used personal experiences and 
anecdotes to shock the audience 
while making a point. Humor was 
often used to soften the blow. 

"If I don't make people laugh 
before I get up there, then I get 
nervous," said Leah Cunnick, se- 
nior in art. 

Topics ranged from affectionate 
poems written for loved ones to a 
buffalo haiku. 

Sue Weber, graduate student in 
speech, used one of her favorite 
Alice Walker poems to frame her 
other entries. 

"I selected several poems for to- 
night," Weber said. "I wanted to 
share the theme of unconditional 
love in poems." 

Weber was a regular at the 
monthly poetry readings. 

"I love poetry and wanted to 
share some of my favorites," she 
said. "I also love listening to what 
others think is important enough to 

After the speakers finished, small 
groups formed. A range of opinions 
on the topics served as a catalyst for 
discussion. The argument and com- 
parison of published authors and 
comments about the shared original 
works arose from a group. For the 
people who attended, an evening of 
poetry meant the exchange of ideas

Ebony Theatre Co. 

members break 

down racial fences 

by Claudette Riley 

t Ebony Theatre Co., actors were 

^teachers and the stage was a class- 

The multicultural performance 
group was composed of many non- 
theater majors who learned about 
the role of black heritage through 
their performances. 

The group's first play of the sea- 
son, August Wilson's "Fences," was 
performed Sept. 30-Oct. 2 and Oct. 
7-9. Set in upstate Pennsylvania, the 
play was dated from September 1957 
to October 1965. 

Full of baseball euphemisms and 
references to major league records, 
the script offered information about 
the frustrations and triumphs of over- 
looked and forgotten players. At a 
time when only the ball was white, 
accomplishments of Negro baseball 
leagues were rarely recorded. 

"Fences" chronicled the life of 
former prison standout baseball 
player Troy Maxsom, and conveyed 

the tribulations of a black America 
family. Maxsom, who was frustrate 
because he wasn't allowed to pla 
major league baseball, overprotecte 
his family and built fences to kee 
them in. Constructing walls again 
communication became a mot 
defining the play. 

"I feel like we help to broade 
K-State's horizon, that's what Ebon 
Theatre is all about," said Jayso 
Strickland, senior in elemental 
education. "Not many people kno 1 
about the Negro leagues."

Carlotte Moore, Ebony The- 
atre Co.'s president and senior in 
pre-law, said the cast members re- 
searched their characters. She said 
this allowed for a deeper under- 
standing of personal heritage and 
history. For example, the reliance 
on God became a pivotal part of the 
story line, and Moore said she felt 
that influence. 

"I definitely learned that if we 
believe in God, He can help us 
overcome anything in our lives," 
she said. 

The cast members spent a month 
rehearsing and blocking the play, 
and Moore said the time spent was 

"It is not a theaterjust for fun, but 
it is theater that is educational," 
Moore said. 

Evolving out of a playwright 
class in 1976, Ebony Theatre Co. 
originally formed as a black interest 
group. It became a recognized orga- 
nization in 1977, and the present 
faculty adviser, Anne Butler, took 
over the following year. 

"It is a theater based on people 
who have an interest in African 
American playwrights," said Butler, 
interim director of women's studies. 
"It is theater with a purpose - — 
public education." 

The group elected officers and 
had a committee to review pieces of 
literature and choose the plays per- 
formed each semester. The students 
also traveled to neighboring col- 
leges and introduced readings, 
monologues, music and dance. 

"There is only one race, the 
human race. Our group helps edu- 
cate people that although there are 
different cultural experiences, there 
is no real difference under the skin," 
Butler said. 

The educational process reached 
a larger audience by incorporating 
members of the theater department 
and the community. 

"Our productions tend to be 
community projects involving the 
cast and officers, but the faculty of 
the theater department act as advis- 
ers to the group, and students in tech 
(technical) classes help construct the 
sets," Butler said. "The acts offer a 
powerful medium of educating 
people about social inequalities in a 
way that is non-threatening." 

Visiting scholar Walter Dallas, 
artistic director of Freedom Theatre 
in Philadelphia, critiqued the open-

"I've learned that K-State is a 
busy complex with faculty who 
genuinely feel connected to stu- 
dents," Dallas said. "The African 
American students are interested in 
developing a cohesive and eclectic 
understanding of their heritage and 
nature without developing a sepa- 
ratist mentality." 

He was enthusiastic toward or- 
ganizations like Ebony Theatre Co. 
because he said they helped pro- 
mote understanding. 

"There is a political, social, and 
educational tool at work," Dallas said. 
"Black images portrayed on stage can 
foster, educate and create a new and 
important understanding."

bikers. Jamey Johnston, sophomore

Because of the mud, Johnston car- 
ries his bike up the slippery hills. The 
steepness of the slopes made them 
dangerous when wet. An additional 
hazard was the high-water level of 
the creek Johnston said the trails 
were more fun last year, when the 
creek was lower and riders could 
jump their mountain bikes into it.

fs grave danger 




» *•, 

sudden gust of wind sent 
brittle leaves skitter- 
ing along the base 
of the iron gates leading to Sunset 
Cemetery. People passed through 
the gates for different reasons. Some 
came to pay their last respects, some 
looked at the tombs and crypts, and 
some rode their mountain bikes. 

Although bikes were prohibited 
on the hiking trails located behind 
Sunset Cemetery, many mountain 
bikers ignored the restriction. 

"It doesn't bother me that they're 
off limits," said Dean Nolting, se- 
nior in statistics. "I can't imagine 
them actually going back there to 
catch anybody because there's a lot 
of places to come out once you're 
down there." 

With little risk of getting caught, 
riders were lured to the trails be- 
cause of their convenient location. 

"Manhattan doesn't have many 
bike trails," said Tom Woolf, junior 
in park resources management. "This 
trail (behind the cemetery) is close. 
I could go riding for a good 45 
minutes and not have to drive 45 
minutes back home." 

Another attraction of the trails 
was their high difficulty level. 

"There are some parts that are 

challenging — a couple of spots 
where the trail drops off into the 
creek," said Sean Lehr, junior in horti- 
culture. "I about fell into the creek once, 
but I grabbed onto a tree." 

Although the creek's close prox- 
imity was a possible danger, it lent to 
the trails' popularity. 

"The trails are most fun down by 
the creek," said Jamey Johnston, 
sophomore in business administra- 
tion. "There were jumps where you 
could jump from the trails into the 
creek when it was real shallow." 

However, the challenge did not 
come without risks. 

"The trails are smooth for about 
100 yards, then they start winding 
down," said Allison Laudermilk, 
sophomore in elementary education. "I 
crashed before it was even what good 
bikers call dangerous or exciting." 

Woolf also crashed on the trails 
and damaged his bike. He finally 
decided riding on them wasn't worth 
the repair costs he was paying. 

"There were a couple of places 
where water ran down the hill, and 
they looked like trails," Woolf said. 
"Basically, I had to ghost-ride and 
jump off my bike. It completely 
destroyed my bike. I don't like go- 
ing back there anymore." 

Winding trails weave through the woods behind the cem- 
etery. Johnston enjoyed riding his mountain bike on the 
steep slopes. (Photo by Sarah Huerter)

Escorts, lock changes and heightened 

awareness keep fear at bay 

by Claudette Riley 

| I the 
xeSKLm c 

hrowing careful glances over 

the shoulder while walking after 
dusk and asking strangers to 
identify themselves before opening 
locked doors were methods sug- 
gested by the K-State Police to in- 
crease students' safety. 

The campus police offered pre- 
ventive literature during fall regis- 
tration and spoke to groups dirough- 
out the year to heighten security 

"You have to take a measure of 
responsibility in your own safety," 
said Lt. Richard Howard, campus 
police officer. 

Suggestions for safety included 
locking car and residence hall room 
doors, walking in groups at night 
and reporting suspicious activity. 

"The campus police have to take 
a preventive stand, but unfortu- 
nately we can't do a lot to protect 
you until something happens," 
Howard said. "Take the guidelines 
we have given and use them." 

He asked students to become 
familiar with staff in the residence 
halls and buildings where they spent 
the majority of their time. The stu- 
dent receptiomsts who worked part- 
time in the halls were trained to 
report possible crime situations. 

Nyambe Harleston, a reception- 
ist at Ford Hall and sophomore in 

electrical engineering, frequently 
worked from midnight until 6 a.m. 
Her main responsibility was watch- 
ing the doors. 

"Anybody can have guests in 
here 24 hours a day, and unless staff 
stand by the doors and check iden- 
tification, we have no way of keep- 
ing people out," Harleston said. 

When the system was activated, 
students had to use their validated 
student IDs to enter their residence 
halls. Staff had the right to refuse 
entiy to students who lost or forgot 
their cards. With the Valadine Sys- 
tem, an alarm sounded when a door 
was propped open for more than 
five minutes. 

"We can check to see if they live 
here and let residents in unless we're 
real busy," Harleston said. "It is left 
to our discretion." 

Security for sororities and frater- 
nities was based on looking out for 
each other. As president of Kappa 
Delta sorority, LaTricia McCune, 
junior in life sciences, stressed per- 
sonal safety during meetings with 
her sorority sisters. 

"We have enforced the idea that 
all doors and windows stay locked," 
McCune said. "We all look out for 
each other." 

Only active members received 
the security combination to the front 

door, and the combination was 
changed several times a semester. 

"We've found that changing the 
combination during Homecoming 
is good, but we also usually change 
it three times each semester," 
McCune said. "Only women who 
live in the house have access to the 

Off-campus housing and apart- 
ment complexes weren't required 
to provide additional security, but 
some places had extra security mea- 
sures anyway. Roy Quilice, prop- 
erty manager of Woodway Apart- 
ments, distributed parking stickers 
to residents and checked parking 
lots during the weekends. 

"The advantage we have is being 
back off the road and separate from 
the other complexes," he said. 
"Therefore, if someone looks sus- 
pect, we can usually point them 

Woodway Apartments also pro- 
vided outside lighting and upheld 
the policy of changing locks be- 
tween residents. 

"We change locks every time 
someone leaves," Quilice said. "If 
they can't get in, then we've already 
reduced the chances of criminal van- 
dalism or other acts. The manage- 
ment does their part, but residents 
have to lock their doors." 

38 f£ security 

V^ampus residence halls provide escort 
services to students who do not want to 
walk alone on campus. In the fall semes- 
ter there were a high number of alleged 
attacks, which prompted students to 
use the escort services. Security mea- 
sures used by off-campus residents in- 
cluded frequent lock changes and lim- 
ited access to front door combinations.

Ilscorts are usually male members of 
residence halls who are selected through 
an interview process. Each escort had to 
wear an escort name tag and present 
proper identification to people being 
escorted. Lt. Richard Howard, campus 
police officer, said other safety sugges- 
tions included locking cars and resi- 
dences, walking in groups at night and 
reporting anysuspicious activity. (Photo

Robertson's viewpoints 
stem controversy

s students filed into McCain Audi- 
torium past swarms of singing and 
shouting demonstrators, they 

earned more than their backpacks. 
Many came to the 96th Landon 

Lecture given by Pat Robertson with 

preconceived feelings, suspicions or 

reservations. They packed into 
McCain to show 
Robertson sup- 
port or disap- 
proval, while 
others came to 
see what the fuss 
was all about. 

"I just want- 
ed to see the 
controversy live 
and hear what 
Pat Robertson 
had to say," said 
Jeremy Rogge, 
sophomore in 
business admin- 

Although he 
left class early to 
get a seat, Rogge 
wasn't allowed 

into the filled auditorium. 

"We listened out here in the 

lobby," Rogge said. "It was quiet 

here exxept for an occasional laugh 

of agreement." 

Police kept students ofFMcCain's 

stairs, and ushers cleared the aisles. 

Extra seats were brought for the over- 
flow crowd, and 1 ,900 were able to 
watch in McCain. The 600 students 
who didn't get seats packed the Union 
Forum Hall to watch on monitors. 

As an evangelical preacher, Chris- 
tian Broadcasting Network founder 
and 700 Club broadcaster, Robertson 
had views that caused groups such as 
the National Organization ofWomen 
to protest his campus appearance. 
Several editorials were written for or 
against the University's selection of 
him as the year's first lecturer. 

Defending the University's 
choice, Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, R- 
Kan., cited Robertson's decision to 
run for the Republican nomination 
for president in 1988, in which he 
garnered 1.9 million votes during the 
primary season and about 9 percent 
of the Republican vote nationwide. 
Kassebaum is the daughter of former 
Kansas Gov. Alf Landon for whom 
the lecture series was named. 

In his lecture, Robertson said 
running for the presidential nomina- 
tion was humbling. However, he 
said he gained a respect for "the God- 
given miracle we call America." 

He also pleaded with Americans 
to refocus on God and to take the 
role of faith in democracy seriously.

Americans prayed to God daily and

110 million Americans attended 
church weekly, Robertson said each 
American had to fight against the 
culture of disbelief, which he called 
"the New McCarthyism." 

"No country can claim to have a 
special place in God's heart," he said. 
"However, America is a better place 
because he has a better place in ours. " 

Robertson discussed Christian 
values and urged the crowd to live 
by a code of behavior, rousing au- 
dience members to their feet for one 
of many standing ovations. 

"Being here in Kansas, I'm glad 
to report that Washington is not the 
heartland of America," he said. "In 
fact, many people do not look to 
Washington to solve their problems 
— they see it as the problem." 

Outside McCain, protesters and 
onlookers attracted curious students. 

"I really wish he had chosen a 
specific topic. He was like here, there 
and thrown about everywhere," said 
Linda Lobmeyerjunior in agronomy. 

Lobmeyer attended the lecture, 
but disagreed with Robertson. 

"I'm a Christian, but I don't 
think you should be raised to politi- 
cal power just because of your reli- 
gious beliefs," she said. "I think it 
(political power) should be based on 
quality of character. Not that I am 
questioning Robertson's character, 
but there are others more qualified."

the lecture broadcast on campus 
airwaves, hoisting their picket signs 
above their heads in reaction to the

speech's main points. A few picket- 
ers admitted they had mixed feelings 
about Robertson's opinions. 

"I disagreed with Robertson's 
views against women and homo- 
sexuals," said Dimitri Tamalis, gradu- 
ate student in biochemistry. "I agree 
with his message of anti-commu- 
nism because my grandfather was 
released from a concentration camp 
two years ago after 28 years in a 
communist country." 

Some people protesting were 
bypassers who stopped to express 
their views. Scott Miller, sopho- 
more in journalism and mass com- 
munications, was walking to class 
when he saw Fred Phelps and de- 
cided to make a statement. 

"It was hard not to say anything, 
so I threw down my books and 
started protesting," Miller said. "Pat 
Robertson, Fred Phelps, they all 
have the right to speak, although I 
think they often go too far. I think 
(John Stuart) Mill said that a grain of 
truth exists in everything, but I think 
when everyone involved has mutu- 
ally exclusive values, coming to an 
understanding would be difficult." 

Hoping that protests and picket- 
ing would not become a common 
sight, Miller said communication 
was the most successful tool avail- 
able for solving disagreements. 

"Robertson's speech was ben- 
eficial if for no other reason than 
people started listening to each 
other," Miller said. "I'm hoping 
with the beauty of free speech, we 
all start listening to each other."

Workers ease the 

hassle of paying 

fees at registration

After filling out 
forms, checking 
on financial aid 
and writing 
checks, students 
wait in the final 
line of the fee pay- 
ment process. The 
fee payment pro- 
cess was stream- 
lined in an at- 
tempt to move 
students through 
Ahearn quickly. 
(Photo by Cary 


ore than 20,000 students 
slowly filed through the doors 
of Ahearn Field House Aug. 
18-20 to pay fees. Student workers 
in the hot, muggy building checked 
IDs, provided information, received 
payments and answered questions. 

"It was mainly my job to guide 
people in the right direction," said 
Steve Beckley, ID checker and 
sophomore in political science. 
"There was a sign posted during 
pre-enrollment advertising for work- 
ers, so I applied for a job." 

ID checkers made sure students 
paid fees at their scheduled times 
and entered through the right door. 
Some were lenient when dealing 
with late arrivals. 

' 'There were students who would 
try to get me to change the rules," 
said Ryan Loriaux, ID checker and 
junior in accounting. "If they had a 
good story, I would usually let them 
through at a time other than when 
they were scheduled." 


The most confusion occurred 
when lightning struck Anderson Hall 
Aug. 20, disrupting the computer 
mainframe and resulting in an hour- 
long delay. 

"We had to make the announce- 
ment about Anderson being struck 
by lightning," said Beckley. "One 
woman threw a fit because she 
thought I was lying to her." 

Fee payment was also an oppor- 
tunity to promote campus services. 

"I just greeted everyone walking 
through," said Shiela Tackett, a 
worker for the Chester E. Peters 
Recreation Complex and senior in 
fine arts. "I asked people before I 
gave them any information, instead 
of shoving it in their faces." 

Although they worked long 
hours in the heat, students had few 
complaints about their jobs.

Jam's Eddie Vedder. Such comparisons 
pushed McLendon to develop his own 
style on stage. (Photo by Vincent

"Jeopardy," and 
Jason Hutto, 
junior in jour- 
nalism and mass 
tions, watched it 
even though he 
thought it was 
stupid. They dis- 
agreed on TV 
shows, but when 
it came to mu- 
sic, they had 
common tastes. 
These room- 
mates and two 
others, John 
Hart, junior in 
political science, 
and Alex Kice, 
junior in andiro- 
pology, made up 
Bosom, a Man- 
a group, the six 

hattan band. As 
worked together. 

"We function as a band," 
McLendon said. "We're not indi- 
viduals here." 

The band began when 
McLendon, Horton and Kice col- 
laborated musically while living in 
the residence halls during their fresh- 

man year. Bosom had its first con- 
cert in November 1 99 1 at a crowded 
house filled with friends and party- 

They received fourth place at the 

1 992 Opus band competition, which 
helped them get hired at other places. 
After the competition, Bosom be- 
gan playing in many of Manhattan's 
bars. They also performed at the 

1993 Spirit Fest in Kansas City. 
Their music changed, and they be- 
gan to develop their own style. 

"We were a cover band (playing 
other bands' songs) until Opus," 
said Calloway, drummer. "We 
wrote originals after Opus." 

They played to crowds of stage 
divers and moshers, but didn't want 
to be stuck in the grunge stereotype. 

"I'd like to think the music we 
make isn't coming from what we 
hear," said Horton, auxiliary per- 
cussionist. "I'dlike to thinkit's some- 
thing original, sometliing from us." 

Hutto said the band's objective 
had changed. 

"We try to write music. We try 
to write songs," Hutto said. "We 
put effort into it to be more than 
loud and obnoxious." 

After changing members four 
times, transforming their sound sev- 
eral times and playing numerous 
gigs, Bosom released its first record- 
ing in early June. Finding time and 
money were the main obstacles in 
producing the recording. 

"About one-fourth of the money 
(used to make the tape) was gig 
money we saved, " McLendon said. 

Bosom selected seven songs for 

by Prudence Siebert 

the first release, and McLendon said 
the band was picky about what they 

"We may write hundreds of songs 
and pick one we like," Calloway 
said. "We're very selective." 

Distributed to Vital Vinyl and 
Streetside Records, their first release 
sold out twice at both places. 
Calloway stressed the importance of 
having a recording. 

"It's important to have a demo 
tape," Calloway said. "If you didn't 
hear us live, you wouldn't know we 

The band practiced at 7:30 p.m. 
on Tuesday evenings, but the room- 
mates often had unscheduled prac- 
tices. They played because they en- 
joyed it, not because they were intent 
on getting a recording contract. 

"It's kind of a hobby, but we're 
always open to whatever," Hutto 
said. "All (of the band members) 
have different ideas about the band." 

The band members still man- 
aged to balance their playing time 
with studying time. 

"Some of us are smart. Some of 
us have better things to do with life 
(than spend all our time playing in a 
band)," Calloway said. "As of right 
now, we're just having fun. If it (a 
contract) comes along, fine. If not, 
fine. We're not playing to get 

Horton agreed. 

"We've all grown up with cer- 
tain dreams in life," Horton said. 
"We love being in a band, but in no 
way are we expecting to do the band 
as a career."

Jason Lueker, sophomore in arts and sciences. L.ueker, co-president 
of Bisexual, (jays and Lesbian Students, woke each morning with the 
same worries that plagued many college students. He spent late nights 
studying, wrestled with deciding his major and wanted acceptance. 

'"Lite was destined to change," Lueker said or "his decision to live 
openly as a bisexual. 

He attended a BGLS meeting his freshman year and said the 
members were open and comfortable with their sexuality and 
individuality. The meetings not only educated him about homosexu- 
ality, but provided an atmosphere that helped him come out. 

"'Most of the students who join us come to us with many 
questions," said Kent Donovan, BGLS adviser and associate professor 
of history. 

Lueker said he initially worried about acts ot retaliation and 
imposed segregation from heterosexual friends. 

"I don't necessarily tell everyone I'm bisexual, and 1 have friends 
I haven't come out to yet," Lueker said. "It they come and ask me 
or start hinting, then 1 know they're mature enough to handle it." 

The BOILS provided a peer group for members confronting a 
predominately heterosexual campus. The club offered support as 
people shared experiences. 

"We (homosexuals) are normal people," Lueker said. "Hetero- 
sexuals have a lianu tin that our entire lives evolve around sex. Sex is 

just a sliver of our lives, there is also family and school. We are just like 
everyone else, except we choose to have sex with our own gender." 

When Lueker became president of BGLS his sophomore year, his 
first action was to change the club's name from BaGaLS to BGLS. 

"Even our name was something people used to taunt us, so I 
changed it," he said. 

As coordinator for the Speakers Bureau, Lueker had more than a 
dozen club members speak to groups, hold panel discussions and 

"Our priority is not to change stereotypes 
because that is an important part of who we are," 
Lueker said. "Realistically, we can't get through to 
everyone. But maybe by answering questions, 
we'll appear human."

The Greek alphabet may have been foreign to some, but behind 
these letters were students searching for acceptance and fellowship. 

"There's always someone (in my house) who's going through the 
same thing I am who can help me," saidjay Carpenter, Intrafraternity 
Council president and senior in physical sciences. 

Although Carpenter supported the greek system, he realized some 
people viewed it negatively. 

"The biggest reason for negative reactions would be that most 
people don't have any idea what the greek system involves," 
Carpenter said. "Every greek chapter is pretty much like any other 
living group. We're a group of people who get together and do stuff 
just like people who live in residence halls. What separates us is that 
we function and do things with members of the whole greek system." 

Greek governing bodies like the IFC and Panhellenic Council, 
composed of members from fraternities and sororities, were concerned 
with how non-greeks viewed greek life. These councils were respon- 
sible for informing others about the greek system. 

"Sometimes there's a pre-conceived notion that we're elitist," 
Carpenter said. "One girl last summer asked me if all greeks had to have 
sports cars and be rich. Stereotypes can only change with education." 

Carpenter said another way to combat stereotypes was to recog- 
nize when greek letters should not be worn. 

"I tell people to try and not wear their letters in Aggieville or if 
they're going out drinking," Carpenter said. "Because if something 
did happen, it would reflect on the entire greek system. It only takes 
one person to make a bad name for everyone." 

Mindy Rawdon, Panhellenic president and junior in elementary 
education, explained the way council members were taught to deal 
with negative statements about greek life. 

"We attack these comments and try to improve sororities' images," 
Rawdon said. "When I hear a negative comment, I sympathize with 
what they're saying and try to share a positive opinion with them." 
1 Rawdon stressed that greek life meant some- 
thing different to everyone involved, 
jig "Sororities have so many things to offer," 
Rawdon said. "Everyone can find something im- 
i portant and something helpful in them."

avid Strunk, senior in accounting, said the stares and turned backs 
he encountered at Kite's Bar and Grille made him want to crawl away. 

"I've had two girls walk off the dance floor when they found out 
I wasn't in a house," Strunk said. 

He said the greek system caused cliques to form. 

"They'll say something about one (group) is a bunch of nerds, form 
boys, preps, whatever," Strunk said. "'It's just too cliquish. Why do 
you need to put out all money just to have a group of friends?" 

Strunk said being non-greek provided him the opportunity to 
meet new people and gave him a sense of identity. 

"I'm my own non-conformist. There is no set social structure. I 
determine what I do," Strunk said. "I know 1 don't have to prove 
anything to anyone. My friends accept me for who I am. If I do 
something wrong, it's against that friend, not the whole system." 

He said he had seen roommates become best friends and drift apart 
when one becomes greek and the other does not. The stereotyping 
began when the greek roommate no longer spent time with the non- 
greek roommate because of all the time that was devoted to his or her 
house. Strunk said this was the reason he didn't know any non-greeks 
with close greek friends. 

"My friends are more individuals," he said. "They spread them- 
selves out and have friends of all kinds. C Greeks get so wrapped up with 
the game (of being greek)." 

Both Snunk and Joleen Macek, senior in accounting, experienced 
negative aspects of being non-greek, but neither wanted to change. 

"I feel I've accomplished more (by being non-greek.) I've had the 
whole college experience, and I didn't need greek (life) to help me," 

Macek said. "I volunteer 

I feel I've achieved a lot and 

learned a lot on my own. Independence is a good thing." 

Although the greek system was not for him, Stnmk said it was 


The greek system is healthy for any school. It's

experience. It gives identity. I'm not proud to be

there's a lot of people it's just not tor. "

efore he started lecturing, the teacher went to the blackboard and 
drew a picture of a girl with short hair. Pointing to the picture, the 
teacher warned his female students that if they ever cut their hair that 
short, he would flunk them. 

Although the teacher was joking, the incident upset some female 
students who believed discrimination was no joking matter. 

"I went and told the head of the department because it upset 
me," said Lola Shrimplin, senior in political science. "She just 
laughed it off. I think she would have taken me seriously if he 
wouldn't have said it in a joking manner." 

Society's discrimination against women was reflected on campus, 
said Sandra Coyner, associate professor of women's studies. 

"I don't think K-State is any worse than the rest of the world, but 
I also don't think it's any better," Coyner said. "It's not a paradise, but 
women can speak out and make changes." 

Shrimplin proved women have made progress in the work force. 
As the only female to work on the K-State Union's loading dock, she 
moved boxes weighing up to 1,000 pounds. 

"If I had applied for this job 20 years ago, they would have laughed 
in my face," Shrimplin said. "This shows the times have changed. I 
applied for any job with the Union, and they offered this one." 

Although she could do the work, she still received prejudicial 
comments, some of which came from women. 

"I've been told I'll hurt myself or that a guy should be doing my 
job," she said. "There are just some people whose minds won't 
change — just don't let them get in your way." 

One student observed discrimination straight from the nation's 
capital. As an intern for Rep. Jan Meyers, R-Kan., April Smith, junior 
in political science, noticed few women had high political positions. 

"It (politics) is definitely a man's world," Smith said. "No matter 
how intelligent you are, you have to compensate for being a woman." 

Speaking out against discrimination would help bring it to an end, 
Smith said, but it would take time. 

"A lot of women don't want to stand up and say 
"what is right," she said. "It takes a little bit of M 

courage. For centuries, women have been sup- 
pressed. It will take a while for us to make this up."

he biggest challenge facing most non-traditional students wasn't 
classwork but financial difficulties. 

Rob CafFey, 24-year-old sophomore in arts and sciences, quit his 
job as an account executive at KMAN-AM 1 350 to go back to school 
full time. 

"You get hit with a double whammy," CafFey said. "It costs more 
money to go to school, and at the same time you are making less 
money since you can't work as much due to classes. It's hard when 
you have a family to support." 

Caffey's family consisted of his wife, Karen, and their 3-year-old 
daughter, Carmen. When Carmen was bom, Karen dropped out of 
college because of the lack of child care available on campus. 

"Two years ago, we quickly found out that the University does 
not provide child care for infants," CafFey said. "They provided child 
care for toddlers, but not infants, despite the need non-traditional 
students had expressed for that program." 

John Reidy, a 44-year-old sophomore in psychology, also quit his 
job to go back to college. Reidy resigned as a substance abuse 
counselor in Chicago and began working full time toward a degree. 

"Getting a college degree has always been a dream of mine," 
Reidy said. "I was very apprehensive, though. I didn't know if I 
would be prepared to handle a full-time load at a major university." 

While Reidy discovered he could handle 16 credit hours, he 
wasn't prepared for the financial problems he faced. 

"There is a strong possibility I may not be here next semester. I 
worked and made around $19-20.000 last year, so I'm ineligible for 
grants," Reidy said. "There is really very little funding available for 
non-traditional students." 

Because he gave up his career to pursue a college education, Reidy 
became frustrated with students who took their classes for granted. 

"I see people on campus who don't seem to 
want to be here, while I am dying to get my 
education," he said. "It's frustrating to see those 
people being awarded financial aid, while I am 
waiting to see it 1 will even be able to continue my 
education here next semester."

raveling at night proved life threatening for one senior. 

Mike Nolting, senior in modem languages, left his residence hall 
at nightfall to meet friends at the Chester E. Peters Recreation 
Complex. He sped along Claflin Drive, turning onto Denison 
Avenue's sidewalks. When the pavement ceased, Nolting merged 
onto the road. One driver spotted his wheelchair's silver reflection 
with barely enough time to abort impact. 

"I'm a risk taker, ".Nolting said. "People with a handicap can't be 
expected to sit in a corner when there are so many things to do." 

Afflicted at birth with cerebral palsy, Nolting was accustomed to 
using a wheelchair. He said accessible living arrangements were a 
serious consideration when he decided which college to attend. 

Nolting was pleased to discover Moore Hall had an accessible main 
floor that was equipped with a handicapped restroom. 

"Campus-wide awareness is growing, but there is more to be 
done," Nolting said. "I have to arrange to take my evening tests early 
in Holton Hall because the shuttle services stop at 5 p.m.." 

Services for physically limited students were under the guidance 
of Gretchen Holdon, Disabled Student Services' director. 

"The University is required to supply academic accomodations," 
Holden said. "For instance, if you are deaf, we will provide you with 
note takers and an interpreter. If you are mobility impaired, we will 
relocate classes for you." 

Disabled Student Services worked closely with advisers to help 
mainstream students into classes. 

"This college doesn't discriminate. The Union especially is highly 
accessible," Nolting said. "It's hard to watch people walk knowing I 
can't follow in the same direction. I have to be cognizant of where 
I want to go and plan (for the trip). I can usually participate (in 
activities), but always stop and find out if I'm physically able to." 

Curbing prejudice for the physically limited was important to 

"Please just call me Mike," Nolting said. "I'm

heard the same negative comments. 

"When my family moved to Johnson County 19 years ago, my 
grandma didn't want us to because she thought our lives would be too 
sheltered," Neill said. 

Neill's grandma had heard some of the stereotypes aboutjohnson 
County. Common myths about residents heard on campus were that 
they were rich, snobby and poor dnvers. 

"I hear the most negative comments here at school," Neill said. 
"It's as fir west in Kansas as I've ever been. It's mostly the people from 
small towns who say things." 

Golden saidjohnson County had its particular stereotypes because 
it was where people in Kansas did their major shopping. He also said 
people had preconceived notions of the county because of the 
professional athletes who lived there, including Joe Montana and 
George Brett.

hometown stereotypes 


r hy do blondes like to date black men? So they can go out with 
someone they're smarter than." 

Racialjokes such as this one could be heard on campus. However, 
not everyone found the jokes funny. 

"Those (racial) jokes upset me. They're ignorant. They stereotype 
blacks as lazy and dumb," said Jeff Maple, senior in sociology. 

While many people took offense to such jokes, some found them 
humorous due to their upbringing, said Jane Elliott, who conducted 
research on racial issues. In the Sept. 9 issue of the Iowa State Daily, 
Elliott said that all whites born, schooled and raised in America were 
racist. Elliott credited the racism to the way whites were taught and 
the vocabulary people used. 

Maple agreed that vocabulary influenced people's ideas on race. 

"Have you ever looked in the dictionary at the definitions ofblack and 
white? All the words used to define black are words such as evil, dark and 
bad," Maple said. "The words used to define white are words like good, 
pure and clean. Everyone sees black as bad and white as good." 

Jennifer Keller, junior in journalism and mass communications, 
said people raised in small towns tended to be more racist. 

"I think the difference (among groups) scares people," Keller said. 
"People need to learn how to accept the differences." 

An indicator that the University had accepted differences was its 
inclusion on a list of top 100 colleges for black students. Maple said 
the selection was an honor, but there were teachers who played 
favorites toward whites. He also said racism still existed, it was just 
expressed in more subtle forms. 

However, Keller said she didn't see much racism on campus. 

"I don't see many public displays of racism. It does seem like 
everyone hangs out in their own group," Keller said. "I don't see 
myself as a racist person at all, but I think that it's odd that other races 
can have their own groups, but we can't, have a white group or we 
would be discriminating. If we are going to be a united campus and 
- society, we need to do away with color-separated 
groups and work together." 

Keller and Maple agreed people need to look 

past a person s skin color. 

"If people looked underneath the flesh, they 
would see we are all the same," Maple said. "The 
inside is what counts."

actors and crew 

of "Hello, Dolly!" 

develop chemistry 

by Staci Cranwell 

s McCain Auditorium's lights 
dimmed, the stage came alive 
with actors and actresses 
singing and dancing their way 
through "Hello, Dolly!." KSU The- 
atre and the Department of Music 
joined forces to present the musical 
Oct. 21-23 in conjunction with 
Family Weekend. 

While presenting a musical was not 
uncommon, the cast and crew said the 
production was special. 

"The directors were different 
from other productions I have 
worked on," said Mandy Sneed, a 
townsperson and Polka dancer in 
the musical and sophomore in psy- 
chology. "Luke Kahlich was the 
director, and he was a real driving 
force behind the musical." 

Auditions began the first day of 
the fall semester. Three days later the 
cast began practicing daily from 6- 
10 p.m. 

"The cast became really close for 
the six to eight weeks we were 
practicing," Sneed said. "One night 
we went out to Bobby T's and did 
karoke. We sang the "Hello, Dolly!" 
song together and had a blast." 

Aggie Callison, senior in applied 
music, played the lead role of Dolly 
Gallagher Levi. She said the cast was 
exceptional because they all wanted 
to do a good job. 

"The fall musical brings people 
out of the woodwork," Callison 
said. "The people in the musical 
really cared about the production. 
We developed a nice camaraderie." 

Callison said she never intended 
on winning the lead role. 

"I wasn't going to audition at all 
because my voice teacher didn't 
think it was a good idea since the 

music was lower than my normal 
voice range. He thought I would 
mess up my voice," Callison said. "I 
was worried when I found out I had 
gotten the part. I thought, 'My 
voice teacher is going to kill me.' " 

Because Dolly was an older 
woman, Callison picked out people 
to serve as models for her character. 
She ended up using her 12th-grade 
English teacher as a model. 

"My mom sent me this letter with 
a checklist enclosed of all the things I 
needed to do to prepare myself," 
Callison said. "My mother played the 
character of Dolly in a summer the- 
ater production, so she wanted to 
make sure I was prepared." 

Not only did Callison and her 
mother share the same part, but 
they also had a similar unexpected 
experience occur. 

"When my mom played Dolly, 
she got her dress caught on a nail and 
fell down. I never let her forget it," 
Callison said. "Well, she was in the 
audience the night I got my shoes 
wrapped up in my dress and fell 
down on stage. She got me back." 

While Callison learned from her 
mother, Karen Doerr, sophomore 
in theater, learned from Callison's 
performance. Doerr played the part 
of Irene Molloy. 

"I learned a lot from watching 
other people and Aggie," Doerr 
said. "Experience is one of the best 
ways to learn and improve." 

Doerr said she enjoyed work- 
ing on the musical. 

"It (the musical) consumes your 
life, and your social life is with the 
cast," Doerr said. "It helps with the 
chemistry between actors and ac- 
tresses when everyone gets along."

"The students experience a 75 
percent discount at a savings of over 
$200," said Shanieka Foster, junior 
in construction science. "For one 
price, students are admitted into 18 

The 1 8 tickets were available to 
students for $63.75. Seats were as- 
signed on a first-come basis. 

Some students said one perfor- 
mance helped them make up their 
minds to purchase a student package. 

" 'Lost in Yonkers' was my fa- 
vorite this semester, "said Lisa Elliott, 
sophomore in journalism and mass 
communications. "I hadn't seen a 
Neil Simon production, and that 
play was a deciding factor on my 
buying the season tickets. 

"The season-ticket price deal is 
unbeatable. It costs less than indi- 
vidual tickets do and averages out to 
around $5 a performance." 

Bill Asmussen, sophomore in 
mechanical engineering, said he 
enjoyed the productions, especially 
since he was raised in the southwest 
corner ofKansas, where opportuni- 
ties to see national touring theater 
and opera companies were scarce. 

"It was my first opportunity to 
see well-known productions," he 
said. "I was surprised when I got 
hooked. In fact, when I go home 
during the summer, I miss the chance 
to see (the productions) and look 
forward to the performances here." 

The performances ranged from 
the Royal Winnipeg Ballet to the 
Kansas City Symphony and the pro- 
duction of Madame Butterfly. Ri- 
chard Martin, director of McCain, 
said he tried to book interesting 
performances throughout the year. 

"Diversity and exposure are on 
the top of our list," Martin said. 
"We want to offer a wide range of 
options and performances to both 
serve their interests and expose the 
audience to something new."

restrictions at 

Country Kitchen 

frustrate students 

by Lisa Elliott 

tudents who regularly made late- 
night runs to Country Kitchen 
to cram for tests were surprised 
when they found their study time 
limited. A time-limit policy was 
enacted by employees who said the 
students kept them from turning 

Twilla Snell, senior in business, 
said she studied at Country Kitchen 
while she was living in Boyd Hall 
and going to school in the early 
1980s. She started going back to 
Country Kitchen after she returned 
to school in January. 

"I can't study at home," She said. 
"There are dishes I need to do." 

When Country Kitchen enacted 
a two-hour time limit for studiers 
during busy times in the third shift, 
Snell said she understood that Coun- 
try Kitchen employees had the right 
to ask students who didn't order 
food to leave if their tables were 

"Too many just order water and 
don't leave a tip," Snell said. "If I 
don't leave a tip, I usually make up 
for it the next time." 

Delbert Wege, assistant manager 
at Country Kitchen, said waitresses 
couldn't make tips because students 
came in and sat at the tables all night. 

He said before the time-limit policy 
began, bussing tables was difficult. 

"If we got busy, we had trouble 
turning tables," Wege said. 

Paula Estey, Country Kitchen 
second-shift waitress, said she didn't 
mind students who came to study 
during her shift. 

She said the time limit was put 
into effect by waitresses on the third 
shift and not the management. Estey 
said it was enforced because of the 
extra work students caused wait- 
resses at this time. 

However, Estey said the man- 
agement told the third-shift em- 
ployees to stop enforcing the policy, 
and many of the waitresses who 
worked that shift were no longer 
employed at Country Kitchen. 

"I don't mind them (students) at 
all," Estey said. "Most everybody

why go?" Clanton asked. 

Since learning the time limit was

Students who planned on get-

work with wedding preparations 
difficult to manage. 

Cheryl Anschutz, senior in el- 
ementary education, and Travis 
Brock, senior in finance, planned to 
get married June 18 in Manhattan's 
St. Thomas More Cathedral. Al- 
though most of the plans had been 
completed, finding time to finalize 
preparations was difficult for the

so everything is really busy," 
Anschutz said. "I can't wait to gradu- 

Brock helped with wedding 
preparations to take some of the 
burden off Anschutz. 

"I did a lot of stuff, more than 
most guys," Brock said. "I kind of 
took the initiative." 

His responsibilites included hir- 
ing a photographer, finding a place 
for the reception and helping 

Anschutz choose invitations. Brock 
said his involvement had advan- 

"First, your fiancee will like you 
a lot better, and, secondly, you can 
take the pressure off the bride," he 

Because the preparations kept 
the couple busy, the best advice 
Anschutz and Brock had for other 
engaged couples was to be orga- 

"Keep on top of things," 
Anschutz said. "If you get lax, you 
fall behind." 

Because the wedding would take 
place in Manhattan, Anschutz and 
Brock made most of the plans on 
their own. Their parents helped 
with some of the decisions, but the 
couple said the wedding was their 
own creation. 

"We know we have our parents' 
support, but it is totally our wed- 
ding," Brock said.

differed from traditional wedding 
practices. One idea was to have 
guests let go of balloons instead of 
throwing rice as the couple left the 

"I thought releasing the balloons 
would be a cool idea and a lot less 
mess than throwing rice or bird 
seed," said Anschutz. "For me, re- 
leasing the balloons kind of symbol- 
izes letting go of our lives as we 
know it now and going on to the 
next chapter in our lives." 

Both the bride and groom said 
they were anxious to be finished 
with the preparations. 

"It will be such a relief to have all 
the stress over," Anschutz said. 

Jill Rush, senior in elementary 
education, and Mike Rush, fifth- 
year student in architecture, no longer 
worried about wedding preparations. 
They were married Jan. 7 at 
Manhattan's First Lutheran Church. 

After dating for seven years, Mike 
and Jill said they were certain about 
their priorities and goals. 

"I think the long engagement 
helped out a lot," Jill said. "We had 
a long time to figure things out." 

After many tension-filled plan- 
ning sessions, the wedding went oft 
without a hitch. 

"Things have really fallen into 
place for us," Jill said. "We were 
very lucky. Everything was what I 
wanted it to be." 

The wedding occurred at a time 
that was perfect for both the bride 
and groom. Jill began student teach- 
ing at a Manhattan elementary 
school, and Mike attended classes. 
However, he said he had one regret. 

"I would have liked to invite 
more people to the wedding," he 
said. "Since it took place over the 
break, I thought that people would 
be gone." 

As they grew accustomed to their 
new roles as husband and wife, the 
Rushes said the stress they felt while 
preparing for the wedding faded. 

"We are enjoying ourselves, and 
everything is going really well," 
Mike said.

1 in 4 college students 
has an eating disorder 


odi always carried a cup with a 

Sometimes, it was full. Other 
times it was empty, but she never 
drank out of it. Instead, she used it to 
carry her vomit. 

Like nearly one in four students, 
Jodi (not her real name) suffered 
from an eating disorder. 

A brochure by the American 
College Health Association listed two 
common types of eating disorders. 
The first, anorexia nervosa, involved 
self-starvation to the point of emacia- 
tion, orinsevere cases, death. Bulimia 
consisted of binging and purging 
causing rapid weight gain and loss. 

"I had both anorexia and bulimia, 
and there is often a tendency to have 
both," she said. "You can have just 
straight anorexia where you don't 
eat and you mentally convince your- 
self that you are eating, but you are 
actually starving your body. With 
bulimia, when you are actually forc- 
ing vomiting or taking diuretics, 
you can be fluctuating back and 
forth where you binge, purge and 
starve yourself but still appear to 
have no abnormal eating habits." 

Although each individual's eat- 
ing disorder differed, Cindy Burke, 
director of health education and 
promotion at Lafene Health Center, 
said playing with food, frequent trips 
to the restroom after eating, an obses- 
sion with weight and excessive exer- 
cising were apparent in most cases. 
Eating disorders often resulted 
from students feeling helpless and 
trying to control at least one aspect 
of their lives, Jodi said. 

"Often there is a lot of pressure, 
and when a person gets stressed or 

by Todd Fleischer 

feels out of control, the person gets 
control by controlling their eating 
habits," she said. 

Nine out of 10 students with an 
eating disorder were women. 

"I feel as though a lot of it is 
societal pressure. Society through 
the media displays that to be anyone 
who is popular and well-received, 
one must be thin," Burke said. 

Jodi was able to mask her disor- 
der because of an earlier physiologi- 
cal problem. 

"It was a physiological problem 
in the beginning," she said. "As soon 
as I would eat, I couldn't keep any- 
thing down, so I would have to have 
a cup with a lid and vomit into that." 

Jodi said she realized the severity of 
her problem when she was given 
muscle relaxers for her physiological 
condition to keep her from vomiting 
and she was able to overcome them 
at will. She grew so practiced that 
she could induce vomiting by merely 
thinking about it. 

"I recognized that I did have a 
problem because obviously vomit- 
ing is abnormal when you are sup- 
posed to be getting better," she said. 

Understanding the disorder was 
an important step in treatment, said 
Burke. Treatment was broken down 
into several steps, which included 
recognizing the problem, under- 
standing what factors caused it, learn- 
ing how to deal with these factors so 
the problem would not reoccur and 
establishing a normal eating routine. 
Assistance was available to stu- 
dents through support groups orga- 
nized by the Health Education of- 
fice or through University Counsel- 
ing, both out of Lafene. 

76^eat i n g disorders 

One in four col- 
lege students has 
an eating disorder, 
Cindy Burke, di- 
rector of health 
education and 
promotion at 
Lafene Health 
Center, said. She 
went on to say al- 
though eating dis- 
orders were not re- 
stricted to fe- 
males, nine out of 
10 students with 
an eating disorder 
were women. The 
two common 
types were 

anorexia nervosa, 
which involved

which consisted of 
hinging and purg- 
ing resulting in

JVlany people 
who suffer from 
bulimia will go on 
stints of secret 
binging and then 
force themselves 
to vomit or take 
diuretics. Al- 
though each 
individual's eating 
disorder was dif- 
ferent, many char- 
acteristics were 
apparent in most 
cases. These in- 
cluded playing 
with food, fre- 
quent trips to the

ing, an obsession 
with weight and

'ith encouraging words, a 
ood dose of patience and 
sometimes a little bribery, stu- 
dent coaches for Manhattan Parks 
and Recreation Department trans- 
formed random groups of area chil- 
dren into teams. 

"It's a good feeling to know 
you've helped everyone on the team 
progress," said Tara Wolfe, volley- 
ball coach for a seventh- and eighth- 
grade team and junior in physical 
education. "I could definitely tell 
the difference in skills from the first 
day to the last day of practice." 

Students learned about coaching 
opportunities from Collegian cov- 
erage and friends who were coaches. 

"A friend of mine talked to me 
about coaching last spring," Wolfe 
said. "I checked into it and got 

One student said his reason for 
coaching was simple. He wanted to 
spread his enthusiasm of sports. 

"I want to coach when I start to 
teach," said Joe Blasi, junior in el- 
ementary education. "I've played 
volleyball for eight years, and I really 
enjoy the game." 

Wolfe said the kids liked playing, 
so it wasn't difficult to encourage 
them. She said the players were 
often inspired by fellow teammates. 

"Out of seven kids on our team, 
there was one boy," Wolfe said. 
"He didn't feel outnumbered. In 
fact, he was the spirit of the team." 

Brian Cramer, junior in arts and 
sciences, learned to be patient when 
coaching a football team of 14 boys. 

"Fourth- and fifth-graders are 

hard to teach because they are easily 
distracted and somewhat hyper," 
Cramer said. 

The players enjoyed having col- 
lege students as coaches. 

"My coaches knew more about 
volleyball than parent coaches be- 
cause they had played the game," said 
Amanda De- 
Weese, a 12-year- 
old seventh- 

player said the 
student coaches 
didn't pick fa- 

"It was neater 
having someone

coach because if 
it was a dad, he'd 
probably pay 
more attention 
to his son than 
the rest of the 
team," said 
Shawn Dryden, 
a 10-year-old 
fifth-grader on 
Cramer's team. 

When pa- 
tience was low and encouraging 
words failed to motivate the team, 
the coaches added an extra incen- 
tive — a post-game pizza party. 

"The team knows they must 
work hard for themselves, not for 
anyone else , " Wolfe said. ' 'But some- 
times bribing them with a pizza

Community offered alternatives

HH , o 

he moon shone brightly above the 
orange haze cast by the sun's descent 
on the horizon. The cool night air 
wasn't harsh enough to inhibit the 
weekend sightseers at Tuttle Creek 
State Park's spillway. They spent the 
evening gazing at the grooves edged 
in shale and limestone, an aftermath 
of the magnificent power of water. 

These sightseers were among the 
students and community members 
who ventured from the crowded 
bars of Aggieville to spend their 
weekend nights in the tranquillity 
and quietness of the outdoors. 

Michelle Brown, junior in pre- 
occupational therapy, and Antonio 
Carnes, junior in fine arts, spent a 
Friday night exploring the spillway's 
cliffs and rock formations. 

"We came here because it is in- 
teresting," Brown said. "We didn't 
have money to spend in Aggieville, 
so we just decided to walk around 
out here." 

Brown said she didn't like 
Aggieville bars because they were 
often too congested. 

"I don't like the atmosphere," 

Brown said. "It is too loud, and 
people are boisterous and imposing." 

David Brown, senior in con- 
struction science, also enjoyed the 
spillway's peaceful setting. He said it 
was a great place to ride horses. 

"I'mjust starting to get back into 
riding horses again," Brown said. 
"It's great because it's God's nature 
out here." 

Brown's friend, Aaron Master- 
son, junior in animal sciences and 
industry, said he rode his horse, 
Sunny, three or four times a week at 
the spillway. Masterson said it was 
also a good place to take dates. 

"Girls love it (the spillway) to 
death," Masterson said. "I got some 
girls to go riding with me Sunday, 
and they think it's just beautiful." 

The spillway wasn't the only 
alternative students had. Nuradi 
Hidayat, sophomore in computer 
engineering, said he liked to go 
bowling at least once a week at the 
K-State Union. 

"When I came here from Indo- 
nesia, I had to find some kind of 
activity to do," Hidayat said. "I 

by Shannon Yust 

bought a bowling ball, and now I 
just come here to play. Also, I get to 
socialize and meet people as well as 
have a good time." 

Hidayat said the weekend activi- 
ties he participated in depended on 
his mood. 

"One weekend I want to go to a 
movie, and some weekends I just 
want to be alone and sit and watch 
movies," he said. 

Other students liked the lower 
cost ofbowling compared to the bar 
scene and movies. 

"Going bowling is cheaper than 
going to Aggieville," said David 
Burlington, senior in secondary edu- 
cation. "A $1.50 game is cheaper 
than a beer and $5 for a movie. 
Besides, movies get old, and it's 
more fun to come here to bowl." 

Burlington said the stuffiness of 
the bars was the reason he and his 
wife, Janette, avoided them. 

"There is less smoke here (the 
bowling alley) than going to 
Aggieville," Burlington said. "I pre- 
fer to go home smelling like I came 
in than like an ashtray."

tudents who took a full class load 
and were active in several orga- 
nizations discovered time man- 
agement was more than a helpful 
suggestion — it was a survival tactic. 
Planning meal times around 
evening meetings and sacrificing 
weekend plans to finish up home- 
work were rou- 
tine side effects 
of juggling time 

Despite his 
lack of leisure 
time, Matt 
Perrier, sopho- 
more in animal 
sciences and in- 
dustry, saidjoin- 
ing campus or- 
ganizations was 
a great way to 
meet people. 

"By becom- 
ing involved, I 
had the chance 
to meet people I 
might not have," 
he said, "and now 
I recognize more 
faces on campus. " 
Active in 
several service- 
oriented activi- 
ties ranging from 
Block & Bridle 
to Spurs, Perrier said helping others 
was the right thing to do. 

"It has a way of opening your 
eyes and humbling you at the same 
time," he said. "Whenever I start to 
get strung out, I look at people who 
have less (activities), and I feel fortu- 

nate to be busy." 

He discovered his involvement in 
Student Senate was a way to directly 
decide his future on campus. 

"Being involved gives you a 
voice," Perrier said. "If I disagree 
with something, then I can have a 
hand in trying to get it changed." 

As a member of the Student 
Alumni Board member, Perrier had 
a chance to tell prospective students 
why he chose to attend K-State. 

' 'We go to high schools and alumni 
events to promote K-State to high 
school students, " he said. ' 'This is great 
because I just love K-State. I guess you 
could say I've bled purple since I was 
knee-high to a grasshopper." 

Michelle Smith, junior in political 
science, said interests outside of school 
ate up much of her free time. 

"I do constituent work for Rep- 
resentative Sheila Hochhauser and 
answer constituent mail, lobbying 
mail and junk mail," Smith said. 

She said her experience as an 
army sergeant stationed in Germany 
during Operation Desert Storm gave 
her the discipline she needed tojuggle 
married life, classwork and involve- 
ment in campus organizations. 

"I was pretty used to working 1 6- 
hour days when the war broke out, 
and I guess that was a test period to see 
how much I could handle," she said. 

Smith developed an interest in 
politics. As vice president of the 
Young Democrats, she was instru- 
mental in gettingjoe Kennedy Jr. to 
deliver an Oct. 1 keynote address. 

' ' I was inspired by j ust seeing how 
tilings (politics) were going," Smith 
said. "I just couldn't sit home and 

complain. I had to do something." 

Smith played a key in Student 
Body President Ed Skoog's Cabinet 
as community affairs director. 

"My goal is to enhance the im- 
age of students in the community," 
she said. "The community of Man- 
hattan often feels it is us (students) 
against them." 

Through this position she helped 
organize drives for Manhattan's 
United Way, Big Brother/Big Sis- 
ters, Girl and Boy Scouts, and Cats 
for Cans, which raised money and 
food for the Flint Hills Breadbasket. 

Keeping busy required Smith to 
balance duties with her personal life. 

"I've learned that you can't stress 
out over everything you're doing. If 
you can't handle it, re-evaluate," she 
said. "The key is to surround yourself 
with competent people you trust and 
can help balance you out. The army 
helped me learn to delegate with 
authority, and I have a great husband 
who's supportive and helps me out." 

Perrier also had a balancing act. 

"The meetings occasionally get 
to overlapping and cut into study 
times," Perrier said. "That's when I 
decide to hit as many meetings as 
possible and devote as much time as 
I can and then study." 

Although he sometimes wondered 
why he got so involved, Perrier said he 
didn't regret how he spent his time. 

"I look at someone who has more 
free time and can go out and play 
basketball a few more times a week, 
and I start thinking this is crazy. But 
then, there is the other 20 or 30 days 
each month when I don't even think 
about what I might be missing."

Faculty and students debate plus/minus grading system 

Students circulated petitions and 
sponsored letter-writing campaigns 
in an effort to stop the implementa- 
tion of a plus/minus grading system. 

The new system would affect 
students' grade point averages by 
adding .3 point for each plus or 
subtracting .3 point for each minus 
the students received. 

Some worried that the new sys- 
tem would hurt student GPAs. 

"The plus/minus system works 

to the disadvantage of the really strong 
students who compete for scholar- 
ships," said Don Hummels, faculty 
senator and professor of engineering. 
"I wouldn't want us to do anything 
that would work against them." 

The proposal surfaced in May 
after Faculty Senate voted to have 
the system take effect in fall 1 994. In 
response to the action, more than 
4,000 signatures were collected.

Recreation Comply 

Rec gets renovated 

The Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex was to be completed 
in summer 1995 after an estimated 18 months of expansion. 

Raydon Robel, director of the Rec Complex, said funding was 
made possible after Student Sen- 
ate passed it in fall 1 99 1 . The total 
cost was $7.8 million. 

"This is no increase in fees. 
There was already $22.25 (of stu- 
dent fees) tied up in other bond 
issues," Robel said. "The refer- 
endum passed asked students to 
continue to collect these amounts 
but to redirect them toward the 
Rec expansion." 

During the expansion, stu- 
dents experienced inconve- 

"The parking is a pain. There's 
no room," said Christine 
Galgerud, senior in kinesiology. 
"It always seems like there's a 
traffic jam because there is only 
one way in." 

While students battled con- 
struction outside the complex, the 
interior also underwent changes. 

"There will be four more bas- 
ketball courts, a 10,000 square-

one out of every 50 students likes 
this," said Steffany Carrel, student 
representative andjuniorinjournal- 
ism and mass communications. 

Some faculty members offered 
support to the students' proposal. 
However, several faculty members 
believed the new system would more 
accurately reflect grades. 

"If a student always performs at 
90 percent, then that student isn't 
really a 4.0 student," said Kenneth 

Brooks, faculty senator for the Col- 
lege of Architecture and Design and 
professor of landscape architecture. 

The debate came to a close when 
the Faculty Senate voted to repeal 
the legislation on Feb. 9 in order to 
help student-faculty relations. 

"We have the opportunity today 
to become a kinder, more gentle 
University," said Ed Skoog, student 
body president and senior in English 
to the Faculty Senate. 

SGA officer resigns 

Student Body Vice President 
Eric Henry, former graduate stu- 
dent, announced his resignation 
to Student Senate Dec. 9. 

Henry, who left the Univer- 
sity after the fall semester, said he 
resigned for personal reasons. 

"This is a very difficult deci- 
sion for me and a very personal 
decision," he said. "It's going to 
be hard to leave." 

Henry gave up a position he 
fought hard for in spring 1993. 
He and his running mate, Ed 
Skoog, senior in English, won 
after students voted three times. 

The election process for stu- 
dent body executive officers 
called for a general election be- 
tween all pairs of presidential and 
vice presidential candidates. The 
two pairs with the most votes 
competed in a run-off election. 

Skoog and Henry ran against 
Fred Wingert, presidential can- 
didate and senior in marketing, 
and Jeff Peterson, vice presiden- 
tial candidate and senior in ani- 
mal sciences and industry, in the 
run-off election. Skoog and 
Henry won by only 13 votes. 

David Frese, campaign man- 
ager for Skoog and Henry and 
senior in journalism and mass 

communications, said a second 
run-offelection was called when 
some students protested the first 
election because the voting booth 
at the Veterinary Medicine Com- 
plex was not open. 

"The Elections Committee 
made a mistake, which could 
have made a difference in the first 
run-off," Frese said. "If there 
hadn't been that mistake, I don't 
think we would have won." 

The two won the second run- 
off election by nearly 300 votes. 

After Henry resigned his vice 
presidency, Skoog selected Frese 
as acting vice president and later 
appointed Frese to replace Henry 
permanently. Student Senate 
members unanimously confirmed 
the nomination. 

Frese said the position of vice 
president was designed to pro- 
vide an elected successor if the 
president became incapacitated. 
However, Frese said he wanted 
to further mold the position by 
developing certain duties. 

"I've tried to be a liaison be- 
tween the cabinet and Student 
Senate and find new ways to 
inject some funding into the li- 
brary," he said.

Students prompted to take advantage of escort services 

Hai Huang, graduate student in regional and community planning, 
was attacked outside the Natatorium Nov. 18 and severely beaten. The 
attack was the fourth assault on K-State students since the beginning of 
the school year. 

"Students no longer feel safe. A campus cannot be good if there is fear 
on it," said Tieren Zhou, adviser for the Chinese Student and Scholar 
Friendship Association. 

K-State Police worked with Riley County, Ft. Riley and Junction 
City police departments before making four arrests in the case. 

After the attacks, students were aware of the dangers around them. 

"I don't want to walk alone at night," said Lisa Claerhout, freshman 
in arts and sciences. "It scares me. I hope something is going to be done 
about it." 

One effort to protect students was made through campus escort 
services. Escorts were available to walk with students 24 hours a day.

closed its doors for the last time in

A.J. Ahlstedt, owner of Kite's, 
said that he was waiting on the 
verdict ofseveral other charges when 
he heard that the ABC was consid- 
ering revoking his liquor license. 
The threat of losing his license, 
along with paying an $8,200 fine, 

forced Ahlstedt to close the bar. 

"I had some good times," 
Ahlstedt said. "We never had the 
money to run the business. We 
struggled through 2-1/2 years. I'm 
proud of what we've done." 

In January, Ahlstedt filed for 
Chapter 7 bankruptcy and turned 
Kite's over to the state. He had 
planned to have an auction on Feb. 
2, but the state would not allow the 
auction to proceed. 

"The state stepped in and said I 
couldn't have it. I don't know why," 
Ahlstedt said. "As far as I'm con- 
cerned, I'm done with it." 

Students expressed disappoint- 
ment in the bar's closing. 

"I'm going to miss it," said Jen- 

nifer Albers, junior in information 
systems. "It was a bar where you 
could always go and know you 
would see your friends. There was a 
lot of K-State tradition there. No 
bar will ever be able to replace it." 

Alumni were also sad the bar, a 
popular gathering place since the 
1950s, was closed. 

Former White House press sec- 
retary Marlin Fitzwater, a 1965 
graduate, said it was hard for him to 
imagine anyone who had ever at- 
tended K-State not having gone to 
Kite's at least once. 

"It's really a tragedy in terms of 
the historic alumni fiber of the Uni- 
versity," Fitzwater said. "A lot of 
great friendships were formed there . ' ' 

The bar was established in 1954 
when Kite Thomas, a retired pro- 
fessional baseball player, purchased

Slim's — from Slim and Marie

building wanted to make the bar

Finney says goodbye to 
her gubernatorial position 

Saying that she would like to be 
remembered as a governor who 
kept her word, Gov. Joan Finney, 
announced that she would not run 
for re-election when her term ends 
in January 1995. 

Shouldering the responsibility 
of the first woman governor of 
Kansas, Finney, said her decision to 
permanently step down from her 
office was partly because of her 
desire to leave the door open for the 
next woman governor. 

"I have one more year left," 
Finney said. "I want to leave a good 
impression for the women who 
will follow me. I have put a crack in 
the glass ceiling here in Kansas, and 
I want to see the young women 
coming in. As my old boss and 

mentor (former governor and U.S. 
Sen.) Frank Carlson told me when 
he decided not to run again after 40 
years, 'You should quit when you 
are ahead.' " 

With a bust ofher to be placed in 
the Statehouse, Finney's name will 
be remembered in political circles 
for years to come. Finney said that 
although she does not have a diary 
like Sen. Packwood, she plans to 
compile notes for a biography and 
remain active in the government 
she has served for 40 years. 

"My last breath will be to con- 
tinue to work to get public initiative 
through for the Kansas people, and 
if I don't get them in my last year, I 
will work for it 'til my last breath," 
Finney said. 

Phelps brings crusade to campus 

The Rev. Fred Phelps brought 
his crusade of intolerance and dam- 
nation of homosexuals to campus 
in the fall. 

Phelps, pastor of the Topeka 
Westboro Baptist Churh came to 
K-State to protest the National 
Organization for Women mem- 
bers who were picketing Pat 
Robertson's Landon Lecture. Af- 
ter the event, Phelps was invited to 
appear Oct. 18 on the KSDB-FM 
91.1 call-in radio program, "A 
Purple Affair." 

Rob Rawlings, senior in eco- 
nomics, and Stephen Seely, junior 
in pre-law, interviewed Phelps on 
the call-in show. 

"The show gave callers a chance 
to call in and say anything they 
wanted to Phelps without threat 
of a repercussion," Rawlings said. 
"He was interested in spreading 
his version of the gospel. For us, it 
was a great publicity gig." 

DB92 alerted the KSU Police 
Department to ensure safety while 
Phelps was on campus. 

"Personally, I think Fred can 
take care of himself," Rawlings 
said. "He claims that if you mix up 
with his kids, they all know karate 
and can fight back. If he is going to 
be out in the public spreading his 

hate and lies, he is making a target 
of himself." 

Rawlings said the experience 
of being on the show with Phelps 
left him with a lasting impression. 

"I'm not sure why he came 
here. He's been concentrating on 
what he calls the No. 1 gay campus 
in Kansas, KU, and has left K-State 
alone," Rawlings said. "I guess he 
decided things weren't perfect and 
protested to show us the way. The 
lasting impression I pulled away 
with was that he is not really igno- 
rant, just more adhering to arcane 
ideas." -Claudette Riley

Abortion doctor shot at clinic 

Death threats, assaults and constant picketing became a common 
occurrence in the lives ofabortion doctors. Several had attempts made on 
their lives, with one assualt resulting in the death of a Florida doctor. 

The threats hit closer to home when Dr. George Tiller, one of the few 
U.S. physicians who performed late-term abortions, was shot Aug. 19 by 
a protester outside his Wichita clinic. Tiller was wounded in both arms 
with a .32-caliber pistol. He received minor surgery and returned to work. 

Rachelle Renae Shannon, a 37-year-old Oregon homemaker, was 
arrested and charged with attempted murder. Shannon was wanted for 
trespassing at clinics in Milwaukee and San Francisco. She was detained 
in the Sedgwick County Jail awaiting her Feb. 7 trial. 

The violent acts of protesters angered both pro-choice and pro-life groups. 

Amy Heffern, secretary of Students for the Right to Life and senior 
in secondary education, said violence contradicted the pro-life position. 

"I wouldn't call someone pro-life if they shoot people," Heffern said. 
"We (Students for the Right to Life) believe no human has a right to say 
someone's life is less worthy of being lived than another person's life." 

Although she condemned using violence, Heffern said she believed 
abortion protesting shouldn't be outlawed. 

"Any group should be allowed to protest peacefully anywhere they 
want to," she said. "Just because one person commits an illegal act doesn't 
mean other people shouldn't be allowed to protest." 

Pro-choice activist Gail Selfridge, president of Manhattan's National 
Organization for Women and senior in art, did not disagree with the 
protesting ofabortion clinics. 

"No one has complained that people should not be allowed to 
protest," Selfridge said. "As long as they are protesting peacefully, no one 
is concerned. It is only when they turn to violence (that people object)." 

Selfridge said protesters had no right to harass abortion patients or 
physicians. She said NOW was against any type of violent protest. 

"It doesn't matter if we don't like what they're are doing," she said. 
"We don't shoot people."

Demonstrating on the south steps 
of the Statehouse Jan. 15, 40 mem- 
bers of the Knights of the Ku Klux 
Klan proclaimed their message of 
segregation and white power while 
holding American, Christian and 
Confederate flags. 

A crowd of about 500 watched 
from behind traffic barricades as Klan 
members protested the observance 
of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in 
Topeka. Michael Lowe, grand 
dragon of the Texas KKK, said the 
Klan had staged similar rallies in 
Springfield, 111.; Austin, Texas; Little 
Rock, Ark.; Montgomery, Ala.; Tal- 
lahassee, Fla.; and Columbus, Ohio. 

To open the rally, an unidenti- 
fied Klan member from Colorado 
said the FBI had 14 files on "illegal 

activities" and "sex orgies" in which 
King had allegedly participated. 

"Martin Luther Kingjr. was not 
a martyr to our nation, but a traitor 
to our nation," the Klansman said. 

Lowe encouraged Kansans in- 
terested in the KKK to write to the 
national headquarters, and the ad- 
dress was displayed on a banner 
unfurled from the Statehouse's top 
steps. This illustrated the rally's sec- 
ond purpose — a nationwide mem- 
bership drive. 

Arguing that the majority of the 
KKK protesters were not Kansans, 
Darren Whitley, senior in journal- 
ism and mass communications, said 
they shouldn't have been allowed to 
stage a rally on the Statehouse steps. 

"I didn't feel like the KKK was 

representative of Kansas," Whitley 
said. "One speaker was from Colo- 
rado, and the other had a strong 
German accent, like he wasn't even 
from the United States. If you don't 
pay taxes in this state, and you don't 
live here, then I don't think you 
have the right to demonstrate on the 
citizens of Kansas' Capitol." 

Staging a counter-protest, a 
crowd of about 400 gathered on the 
north side of the Statehouse. 

The amount ofsecurity this group 
received surprised Whitley. 

"The KKK was better pro- 
tected," he said. "I felt like they got 
special treaUnent in comparison with 
the other protesters. Their (counter- 
protester) fences were nothing com- 
pared to the KKK's." 

Sen. Rip Gooch, D- Wichita, said 
a motorcade 3 miles long came from 
Wichita for the counter-protest. 

"That's a true testimony to the 
cause and to the people who are 
willing to stand for the cause," Gooch 

Renaldo Andrews, assistant to 
the executive director and curator 
of the Black Archives of Mid- 
America Inc. in Kansas City, Mo., 
said he came to the rally because of 
a news story he had read. 

"In World War II people slept, 
and a cancer grew," he said. "We 
must realize that we cannot allow 
the ignorance and the savagery of 
racism to rear its ugly head. There's 
a chill in the air, and it isn't caused by 
Mother Nature."

On Jan. 17, an earthquake tore 
through Southern California, kill- 
ing at least 29 people. 

Broken belts of freeway and fallen 
and burned houses marked the dead- 
liest stroke of the earthquake, which 
measured 6.6 on the Richter scale. 

For Carolyn Cormaci, junior in 
bakery science and management, 
the news of the earthquake came as 
a surprise. 

"Someone came and woke me 
up in the sleeping dorm, telling me 
there was an earthquake in Los An- 

geles," Comiaci said. "I had a mes- 
sage on my machine from my oldest 
sister. My dad, who was in Califor- 
nia on business, made contact with 
her to let her know he was OK, but 
my mom was on a plane to meet my 
dad (in LA) and didn't know any- 
thing. For the next few hours, we 
tried to locate her and let her know 
he was OK." 

Checking on her parents was 
difficult, she said. 

"Whenever we called, we got a 
recording saying that we couldn't 

get through to that area because of 
the earthquake," Cormaci said. "We 
had to wait for them to call us." 

Ashley Malone, sophomore in 
sociology, was also worried about 
her father, who was inCalifornia on 
business. However, her dad arrived 
in the city after the earthquake hit. 

"My mom dropped him off at 
the airport in Kansas City," Malone 
said. "Five minutes after she pulled 
away, she heard about the earth- 
quake on the radio. We didn't hear 
from him for a day, but we couldn't 

do anything. We were nervous, but 
everything turned out OK." 

Because of the damage caused by 
the earthquake, Mike Malone was 
unable to get to one of the two job 
interviews he had traveled to Los 
Angeles to attend. While waiting in 
the airport for his flight home, he 
experienced an aftershock. 

"He told me his coffee was shak- 
ing, and ceiling tiles were falling 
out," Malone said. "He said it was 
crazy — just like in a movie."

Trade not free of conflicts 

The North Atlantic Free Trade 
Agreement was passed 234-200 by 
the House of Representatives and 
put into effect in January. 

NAFTA eliminated most barri- 
ers to free movement of goods and 
services between the United States, 
Mexico and Canada, creating the 
world's largest economic market. 

Opposition to the alliance was 
based on the fear that companies 
would move plants to Mexico to 
take advantage of low wages. 

Roger Trenary, instructor of 

economics, disagreed with this view. 

"This will not effect us much," 
Trenary said. "For all the sweating 
and loud voices over the debate, 
there isn't going to be a huge suck- 
ing noise of jobs going to Mexico." 

Supporters found NAFTA favor- 
able based on the size of the market 
that would be opened to the U.S. 

"It will enhance American power 
and prestige in the world," said 
Rep. Dan Glickman, D-Wichita. 
"It makes good sense for America's 
economic future." 

Bobbitts acquitted of all charges 

In her fourth year of marriage, Lorena Bobbitt cut off her 
husband's penis after he allegedly raped her. John was charged with 
marital sexual abuse. The charge of rape was not filed because Lorena 
was living with her husband and was not seriously, physically harmed. 

Sandra Coyner, associate professor of women's studies, said the 
system of judicial recourse wasn't fair to women. 

"She couldn't stop him from raping her," Coyner said. "That would 
make a person crazy. Female rage is going to increase with male abuse 
and the lack of response, especially from the judicial system." 

Lorena was charged with malicious wounding. Police found the 
organ in a vacant lot, and it was reattached in a nine-hour operation. 

Both husband and wife were acquitted of the charges against them.

Tragedy struck Nancy Kerrigan Jan. 6 in Detroit. 

Shane Stant clubbed Kerrigan on her right leg and 
knees, leaving her bruised and unable to compete. 
Kerrigan's chiefrival, Tonya Harding, won the cham- 
pionship and a place on the Olympic team. Although 
she was unable to compete, Kerrigan was also named 
to the team. She returned to the ice Jan. 16. 

Debbie Pilant, junior in journalism and mass com- 
munications, was a region alternate from the Mid- 
western section to the National Figure Skating Cham- 
pionship twice during her 12 years of skating. 

"When Kerrigan was attacked, the first thought that 
ran through my mind was, 'Which competitor did this?' 
Some will do anything to win," she said. 

While Kerrigan recuperated, attention focused on 
Harding, her bodyguard, Shawn Eckardt, and her ex- 
husband, JeffGillooly. Arrest warrants were issued for 
Eckardt, Gillooly, Stant and Shane Smith. Harding 
denied she was involved in the plot, but U.S. skating 
authorities considered removing her from the team. 

Harding later admitted she failed to come forward 
with information she learned after the attack. 

Gillooly pleaded guilty to racketeering Feb. 1 and 
agreed to testify against Harding. 

A special figure skating panel considered stripping 
Harding ofher U.S. Figure Skating Association mem-

They agreed to leave her membership intact. 

Jordan passes the ball on Health care reforms proposed 

On Oct. 6, 1993, Michael Jor- 
dan stunned the world by announc- 
ing his retirement from basketball. 
The decision came after a season of 
triumph and tragedy. 

In the summer, 
Jordan's Most Valuable 
Player performance lead 
the Chicago Bulls to their 
third-straight NBA 
championship. The same 
season was marred by the 
murder of his greatest 
fan — his father, James. 
His father's death was a 
factor in Jordan's deci- 
sion to hang up his Nike Airs. 

"I was pretty much decided at 
that particular time, but it made me 
realize how short life is," Jordan 
said. "I guess the biggest positive 
thing I can take out of my father not 
being here today is that he saw my 
last basketball game." 

Jordan had two Olympic gold 
medals, three NBA titles, an NCAA 
championship and seven scoring 
titles. During his nine years with the 
Bulls, he was named Rookie of the 
Year in 1985, NBA Most Valuable 
Player in 1988, 1991 and 1992, all- 

NBA first team for seven straight 
years and NBA all-defense first team 
for six straight years. 

He also had the honor of being 
the Bull's all-time lead- 
ing scorer and the 15th 
all-time NBA leading 
scorer. In January, Jor- 
dan was named Associ- 
ated Press' Male Athlete 
of the Year for the sec- 
ond consecutive year. 

Jordan said he had 
reached the pinnacle of 
his career and set his 
sights on another sport 
— baseball. The Chicago White 
Sox AAA farm club agreed to give 
Jordan a uniform. 

Saying the sport would miss him, 
K-State men's basketball forward 
Ron Lucas, senior in sociology, pre- 
dicted Jordan would not return to 

"I guess he retired because he 
wanted to try something different," 
Lucas said. "I didn't think he would 
stay retired for long, but now that 
he's got baseball, he's found some- 
thing else to occupy his time. He 
probably won't come back." 

Under President Clinton's plan for health care reform, everyone 
would be insured. However, many people didn't see how that was 
supposed to happen. 

Lannie Zweimiller, director of Lafene Health Center, said he had 
mixed feelings about the plan's proposals. 

"I think the positive side would be that everyone could access the 
same quality of health care, but I don't know how that's going to be 
paid for," Zweimiller said. 

If the plan was approved, Zweimiller said there would be a higher 
cost for health care due to increased amounts of paperwork. 

According to the Sept. 20 edition of Newsweek, the biggest 
winners in the reform would be the working poor. One reason for 
this was because their work made them ineligible for Medicaid. If 
they were also unskilled workers, they had jobs that didn't provide 
health benefits. With the health-care plan, preventive and not just 
emergency medicine would be available. 

Ironically, Newsweek said the poor would also be losers. Al- 
though the poor would benefit from universal coverage, they would 
remain under Medicaid and Medicare plans, which was targeted for 
the most cuts in cost. They would be the first hit if financing fell short. 

Medical specialists were also listed as being losers if the plan was 
implemented because, according to Newsweek, the new plan's 
emphasis on health maintenance organizations would sharply in- 
crease demand for the general practioners who staffed them, which 
meant fewer positions for specialists. 

The Sept. 20 issue of Time said the plan's guaranteed 
benefits included hospital stays, doctor visits, ambulance trips, drugs, 
lab tests, preventive dental care for children and pregnancy-related 
services. American citizens, legal residents and long-term non- 
immigrants would be covered.

90 ft international news 

sell it, rent it or give it away. This 
decree removed the last obstacle to 
open an entirely free market in Russia. 

The privatization of land capped 
a 18-month battle between Yeltsin 
and the communist parliament. 

"The uprisings against Yeltsin 
are because the old parliament, full 
of hard line communists, resisted 
democracy and change," said Nick 
Nickoladze, freshman in journalism 
and mass communications. 

Nickoladze, a native of the former 
Soviet Union Republic Georgia, 
was concerned with the challenges 
facing Yeltsin in his democracy push. 

The election of right wing 

Vladimir Zhirinovsky to the second 
most powerful post in parliament 
was a checkmate for Yeltsin's plan. 

"The major reason Zhirinovsky 
was elected was support from areas 
where the residents are hungry," 
Nickoladze said. "During the com- 
munist regime (before Yeltsin), they 
were guaranteed food, a salary and 
lodging. They don't really care 
whose hands the government is in. 

"It is scary that although there 
are many forces against him, mil- 
lions support him. Ifhe becomes the 
leading party, than he wants to re- 
store the U.S.S.R. and take Alaska 
back from the United States." 

With Zhirinovsky's steady rise of 
power, a possible defeat ofYeltsin in 
the parliament would threaten 
Nickoladze's freedom. 

"Before Yeltsin, it felt like a 
prison," Nickoladze said. "Dream- 
ing was impossible. Freedom makes 
you feel like a person, an individual. 

"I'm worried that if Zhirinovsky 
gains power, I may not be able to 
travel back and forth. It depends on 
the rules and regulations. If I'm back 
for a visit, and he takes power, I'll try 
to escape from the country before 
he blocks the airports and shuts down 
the borders."

U.S. forces removed 
from Somalia 

Famine and civil war tore through the African 
country of Somalia, leaving 350,000 people 

To end the violence, the United Nations sent 
a peacekeeping force to the country in Decem- 
ber 1992. The force numbered close to 30,000 
soldiers from 33 nations. The United States 
contributed 5,500 soldiers to the effort. 

Thirty-one Americans and 90 peace keepers 
from other countries have been killed in the 
guerrilla warfare since the mission began. 

Mohamed Farrah Aidid, the faction leader 
accused of initiating most of the violence, man- 
aged to remain out of the U.N. officials' grasp 
despite an arrest warrant that was issued for his 
capture. The warrant was suspended Oct. 3 after 
18 Americans were killed by violence in the 

Because of the American deaths, the strategy 
changed from one of force to diplomacy. Offi- 
cials began to look for peaceful ways to set up a 
democracy. Robert Oakley, special envoy to 
Somalia, went to the country to get support for 
a political settlement. 

The Clinton administration said American 
forces would pull out of the area by March 3 1 . 
However, many political leaders and members of 
peacekeeping forces were fearful that if the 
United States pulled out, Somalia would be 
abandoned and Aidid would remain in contol. 

One K-State student was glad for the new 
strategy. Lori Cagle, junior in journalism and 
mass communications, said her husband, Sgt. 
Robert Cagle, ran a greater risk of being sent to 
Somalia when officials considered turning the 
mission into a war effort. 

"If it was a war, he would've been sent," 
Cagle said. "The people who went now were 
paramedics and peace keepers. I was scared my 
husband would have to go over. I've been very 
lucky. My husband missed out on both Somalia 
and Saudi Arabia."

Peace negotiated for Middle East 

The historic agreement that transpired 
Sept. 13 in Washington, DO, between Israeli 
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine 
Liberation Organization Chairman Yassar 
Arafat was once viewed as unattainable. As 
suspicions and disbeliefs were quieted, Samir 
Awad, senior in architectural engineering, 
followed reports with optimism. 

After a quarter-century of strife between 
Israel and the PLO, the resounding vibration 
of fighting was replaced with hope as Presi- 
dent Clinton spoke the words of peace in 
three languages, "Shalom, Salaam, Peace." 

Awad, a Palestinian, said the agreement 
was the first step in a long, important road 
leading to the establishment of a peaceful 

"The motivation is to have our own gov- 
ernment, our own state, country and flag, to 
know we had a place that was ours and to be 
able to say, 'This is the nation of Palestine,' ' 
Awad said. 

Before transferring to a high school in 
Kansas City, Kan., Awad lived with his family 
in Bethlehem, Jordan. Although Awad was 
no longer directly affected by the Israeli- 
Palestine power struggle, his parents were 
subjected to numerous interruptions in their 

everyday flow of life in Bethlehem. Schools, 
stores and colleges were forced to close when- 
ever Israeli troops entered the town since the 
Palestinian uprising in December 1987. 

"If there was a strike day, the schools 
would close down so students wouldn't get 
together and demonstrate," Awad said. "I was 
lucky to have relatives in Kansas City. I 
moved there to finish high school and then 
stayed to attend college." 

Wearing the black and white kuffyia that 
signified the Palestinian cause, Awad was 
anxious to hear the specific points of the vague 
framework for peace that was signed during a 
White House ceremony. 

"I'll go home this summer," he said. "I 
want to walk on the streets without seeing 
soldiers and feeling threatened." 

Awad said that until Palestinian autonomy 
was fully realized, the possibility that Palestin- 
ians would face disappointment was high. 

"There is a feeling that this (agreement) 
doesn't mean anything," he said. "Palestin- 
ians have been promised many things and 
have always been disappointed. Nobody 
knows the outcome. It's just a long, difficult

Oct. 1 earthquake leaves 6,200 dead in India 

An earthquake measuring at 
least 6.0 on the Richter scale 
wreaked havoc on southwest In- 
dia at 3:56 a.m., Oct. 1. The 
quake, which was felt at least 400 
miles from its epicenter, caused 
extensive damage. 

According to local news agen- 
cies, many villages were quickly 
leveled as the earth shook vio- 
lently and crevices opened on its 

surface. As the earth's crust split, 
people were crushed in their homes 
as they slept. 

An estimated 3 ,000 people were 
killed in each of two districts, 
Umarga andKillari. The total death 
toll from the earthquake exceeded 

After hearing about the devas- 
tation in his home country, 
Santhosh Thadigiri, graduate stu-

"Although my family was not 
affected by the quake, I wanted to 
do something to help the people of 
my country who were left home- 
less by the earthquake," said 
Thadigiri. "We (India Student 
Foundation) sat at the Union for 

three days and collected money 
for the Indian Relief Fund." 

The students raised $2,500, 
which was given to the American 
Red Cross for the victims. 

"People here at K-State were 
very receptive and concerned 
about what happened," said 
Thadigiri. "That was evident in 
the amount of money we raised 
for the Indian Relief Fund."

Anderson Hall fire sparks 


by Renee Martin jJ 

J^lthough the fire died out, the 
J^^controversy raged on. 
M ^L A lightning bolt struck 
Anderson Hall's south roof Aug. 20, 
starting a fire that damaged offices 
on three floors. 

Craig Goodman, junior in fine 
arts, spotted the fire at 3:45 a.m. and 
alerted campus police. His quick 
action and the building's sprinkler 
system helped keep the fire from 
burning out of control. After it was 
extinguished, Division of Facilities 
workers were called off all projects 
to repair Anderson's $1.1 -million 
damages, a decision that angered 
some faculty members. 

"Why is it our University can 
run for many years without finding 
a few thousand dollars to make a 
much-needed and much-used lec- 
ture hall functional but has no trouble 
reallocating an excess of a million 
dollars on a few day's notice to repair 
a small number of administrative 
offices?" asked Myron Calhoun, as- 
sociate professor of computer and 
information sciences, in his Aug. 26 
letter to the Collegian's editor. "Do 
we have our priorities straight?" 

Calhoun said he was upset be- 
cause he was teaching in Seaton 
132, a room that lacked a working 
air-conditioning system. 

"It was so hot in the room that I 
had to leave the window open, but 
then I had to put up with distrac- 
tions like lawn mowers," he said. 
"Also, our classroom is right next to 
an intersection, and the traffic is 

He said he wrote the letter to 
draw attention to his situation. 

"I was just discouraged that we 
can spend a million bucks repairing 
Anderson, but we can't find the 
money to install an air conditioner, 
he said. 

The letter drew a response from 
facilities, Calhoun said. 

"I did receive a call from facilities 
about the problem," he said. "That 
made me feel better." 

However, Calhoun said the air- 
conditioning problem wasn't com- 
pletely solved, so he switched his 
class to another room. 

"Eventually, the air conditioner 
in the middle of the room was 
repaired, and another one was 
brought in, but it wouldn't fit in the 
window properly," Calhoun said. 
"I ended up moving the class to 
Nichols 122." 

The facilities crews were not 
only pulled off small projects but 
larger ones including re-roofing 
Ahearn Field 
House and 
Willard Hall. 
Gerald Carter, 
director of facili- 
ties planning, 
said the crews' 
help was neces- 
sary to repair 

"We stopped 
some projects 
totally so we 
could fix the 
building," he 
said. "There 
were some 
people willing to 
let go of con- 
struction people 
the day of the 
fire but thought 
they would 
come back the 
next day. It just 
doesn't work 
that way." 

Many En- 
glish graduate 

teaching assistants were also upset 
that facilities crews rushed to work 
on Anderson, said Sarah Green- 
wood, English graduate teaching 

The GTAs were moving from 
the basement of Nichols Hall to 
newly remodeled rooms in Denison 
Hall. They were waiting on facilities 
workers to move their desks and 
filing cabinets, she said. 

After the workers were redi- 
rected to repairing Anderson, frus- 
trated GTAs wrote a letter to the 
Collegian's editor signed by Green- 
wood, Sara Cunningham and "all

the other displaced, carpet-sitting

"We've got a problem," they 
said in the Aug. 27 letter. "When 
lightning struck Anderson Hall, fa- 
cilities was called offall other projects 
to respond to the emergency. Need- 
less to say, the move from Nichols 
Hall didn't take place. 

"Now we've got three very 
nicely carpeted offices in Denison. 
We don't, however, have any furni- 

Greenwood said the letter was 
written because she wanted others 
to know about the problem. 

"We figured that no one at the 
top knew about the situation," she 
said. "The first two weeks we basi- 
cally had conferences sitting on the 
floor. We thought it was silly that 
facilities could take four months to 
finish Anderson Hall, but they 
couldn't take a little time to move 
our furniture." 

The GTAs were worried their 
move would be delayed for an 
indefinite period of time, 
Cunningham said. 

"We were feeling frustrated be- 
cause we wanted our office space," 
she said. "We wrote the letter be- 
cause we wanted to make sure we 
weren't forgotten." 

Facilities took action after the 
letter was published, Greenwood said. 

"Randy Slover (director of main- 
tenance) called me a week after the 
letter appeared," she said. "He told 

me he'd do his best to arrange for the 
furniture to be moved. I was sur- 
prised that anyone cared." 

Carter said facilities workers tried 
to help with campus problems, but 
Anderson required immediate at- 
tention because one-third of the 
building was damaged. 

"In the south wing of the build- 
ing, the fire heavily damaged the 
steeple and a majority of the attic," 
he said. "There is significant smoke 
and water damage in the cashier's 
area on the second floor. There is 
also heavy water damage in the 
president's suite, the attorney's of- 
fice and News Services." 

The repairs, which cost 
$ 1 , 1 07 ,787 , were temporarily funded 
by the University's building monies. 

"We are expecting to get new 
money from the state," President 
Jon Wefald said. "We hope all the 
damages will be paid for by money 
from the state legislature." 

Wefald was also inconvienenced 
by the fire. He moved into Ander- 
son 108 until repairs in his office 
were completed Dec. 1. 

"We have had a great team effort 
dealing with the changes," Wefald 
said. "It has pretty much been busi- 
ness as usual." 

After Anderson's construction 
was completed, Carter said facilities 
crews resumed working on other 

"Even ifsome projects were post- 
poned," he said, "we're working 
hard to get them done."

He worked with three Univer-

offices during his years on campus. 
After devoting 27 years to aca- 
demics, Vice Provost Robert Kruh 

"Bob Kruh is what I'd call a Most 
Valuable Player. He performed a 
variety of positions over his 27 years 
in an unexcelled manner," Univer-

years, Kruh con-

ways. Although 
he was no longer

pus, his accom- 
plishments re- 

"When I 
came to K-State, 
the graduate of- 
fice was mainly a 
clerical operation," Kruh said. "We 
added a whole office enterprise to 
help out faculty." 

With Kruh's assistance, students 
could receive a doctoral degree in 
history, sociology, agricultural en- 
gineering, civil engineering, human 
ecology or computer science. 
"I also had a hand in starting

of our students." 

Robert Kruh, 
Vice Provost 

Friends of the Library," said Kruh, 
who was the group's first president. 

Kruh was also the first president 
of Phi Beta Kappa, an honorary for 
elite scholars. 

"When I first came here, the 
University did not have a broad 
spectrum. It was just known as an 
Aggie school," Kruh said. "In 1974 
I helped in chartering Phi Beta 
Kappa. Students are now honored 
for top course work." 

Kruh witnessed the signing of 
honorary members Jimmy Carter, 
former president, and Aaron 
Copland, late composer. 

Before Kruh began his career at 
K-State, he taught at the University 
of Arkansas. His first teaching job 
was at DePauw University, but he 
left because he wanted to teach at K- 
State, where he would have more 
research opportunities. 

Kruh said he would remember 
assisting in allocating funds to sup- 
port research. 

"I'm planning to continue work 
with the KSU Research Founda- 
tion," Kruh said. "I'd like to help 
magnify the market ability of pat- 
entable property." 

Although Kruh dedicated time 
to research, contact with the stu- 
dents was important to him. 

"I enjoyed and spent more time 
teaching General Chemistry (at Ar- 
kansas)," Kruh said. "I enjoyed giv- 


ing students an outlook on science 
and an approach to it from a liberal 

After retirement, Kruh said he 
entertained the idea of teaching a 
chemistry class. This was partly be- 
cause Kruh liked student contact. 

"I miss being in the classroom 
involved with the students. In this 
position (vice provost) I don't have 
nearly the contact with the stu- 
dents," Kruh said. "I wouldn't have 
stayed on the administrative track, 
though, if I didn't think I was help- 
ing people." 

Kruh also viewed administration 
as a necessity in helping students. 

"I've always felt administration is 
not an end in itself. It needs to be 
done to help academic needs of our 
students," he said. 

His efforts were made worth- 
while when he knew a student had 
been successful. 

"The most profound contribu- 
tion is the student," he said. "Col- 
leges and universities are the first set 
of institutions that regenerate and 
renew our society." 

With all of these accomplish- 
ments under his belt, Wefald said 
Kruh would not easily be forgotten. 

"Bob Kruh cannot be replaced. 
He will always be missed," Wefald 
said. "He will be remembered for 
years to come for his many contri- 
butions to Kansas State." 

In addition to his 
at K-State, Vice 
Provost Robert 
Kruh is also a 
gourmet cook. 
Kruh said he liked 
to cook continen- 
tal foods. He used 
to prepare most of 
the meals at home 
until his wife re- 
tired and took 
over the cooking

Barkley receives national 

by Kristin Butler 

rlor associate professor Andrew 
! Barkley, agricultural econom- 
ics was a family affair. 

His father, uncle and grandfa- 
thers were all teachers, which inter- 
ested Barkley in the field and led to 
his national award. 

Barkley and his daughter, Katie, 
were watching Saturday morning 
cartoons when Marc Johnson, Col- 
lege of Agriculture's interim dean, 
called to tell him he had been chosen 
Kansas Professor of the Year. 

"I was very excited when I 
heard," Barkley said. " The applica- 
tions had to be turned in months 
before, so I was very surprised." 

Barkley was nominated byjohn- 
son, the head of his department. 
After the nomination, students and 
colleagues wrote letters of recom- 
mendations and sent them to Wash- 
ington, D.C., where a panel of stu- 
dents and faculty reviewed them. 
The final selection was made by the 
Council for the Advancement and 
Support of Education. 

As Kansas Professor of the Year, 
Barkley said he would continue 
being committed to students. 

"I put all my time and effort into 
the classes I teach," Barkley said. "I 
have a large commitment with each 

He spent his time both in and out 
of the classroom planning ways to 
help his students succeed. 

"My grades didn't show it, but I 
learned more in his class than I did in 
the three years I've been here," said 
Brian Gates, se- 
nior in agricul- 
tural economics. 

The award 
was not the first 
one he had re- 
ceived. In 1990 
and 1993, he was 
named Out- 
standing Faculty 
in the College of 
Agriculture and 
was awarded 
Adviser of the 
Year in 1992. 

"Those (aw- 
ards) were se- 
lected by stu- 
dents, so they are 
pretty special to me," he said. 

He began teaching at the Uni- 
versity six years ago where his uncle, 
Ted Barkley, was a professor in the 
Division of Biology. 

"I have a lot of family in teach- 
ing," Barkley said. "That's were I 
got the interest in teaching. I wanted 
to follow in the ol' footsteps."

office in Waters 326. Students often 
stopped by Barkley's office to talk about 
everyday things as well as classwork.

Tlhe road to an undergraduate 
degree in architecture was de- 
scribed by students as grueling. 

"To survive and stay with archi- 
tecture, it has to be a part ofyou," said 
Adam Gerber, fifth-year architecture 
student. "It's such a sacrifice that you 
have to really want it. Architecture is 
a part of me, it is a desire of mine." 

Architecture majors spent an av- 
erage of four semesters classified as 
environmental design majors. Once 
accepted into the College of Archi- 
tecture and Design, students spent 
time outside the classroom working 
on projects. Students had to decide 
if earning an architecture degree was 
worth five years of intensive study- 
ing and time-consuming projects. 

"All third-year students ask them- 
selves that very question," he said. 
"You spend all your time in studio, 
and architecture becomes your life. " 

Gerber said students' first semes- 
ters in the architecture sequence 
distinguished serious majors from 
the rest. 

"They started stacking the as- 
signments pretty steep the first day," 
he said. "We had to like it because 
we lived it." 

After they were admitted to the 
college, students were assigned a 
studio. They settled into studios in 
Seaton Court, with an average of 1 5 
students assigned to each one. 

Plant Pathology 

"It's nothing to put in 80 to 100 
hours a week," said Trey West, 
junior in architecture. "The projects 
are so complex that you have to 
spend that much time in studio." 

After only one semester in the 
college, West discovered a secret to 
surviving the curriculum. 

"We have to enjoy it if we are 
going to do it," West said. "We 
complain all the time about the 
work and conditions, but I wouldn't 
be in architecture if I didn't love it." 

The studios became the students' 
second home. They decorated their 
workspaces with calendars, posters 
and signs. 

"Several of us brought in carpet. 
We had our books, radios and ev- 
erything we could possibly need 
within arm's reach," Gerber said. 
"We study all night, sleep on our 
desk for a few hours, go home, 
shower and then come back." 

Students built cubicles and di- 
vider walls around the workbenches. 

"Students are in these rooms for 
five years," said Michael McNamara, 
associate professor of architecture. 
"Unlike students in arts and sci- 
ences, who move around from build- 
ing to building, architecture stu- 
dents have a sense of territory. They 
feel rooted." 

At the beginning of each year,

this, students of-

Q. If you could invite one famous 
guest to dinner, who would it 
be and why? 

A. Rick Bass, author of "Winter," 
"Nine-Mile Wolves, "etc. I love his 
writing style and subject matter. He 
would be a delight to talk to. 

Q. What do you like most about K- 

A. The friendly atmosphere, beautiful 
campus and the University's com- 
mitment to excellence. 

Q. What is the most challenging 
aspect of your job? Why? 

A. Trying to match aspirations and 
expectations with available resources. 
There is so much that can be done, 
but so little time do it in and sofeiv 
dollars to extend the timeframe. 

Q. What advice would you give to 
college students? 

A. Seeking the specialized skills needed 
to earn a living is fine but can lead 
to a narrow view of the world. Open 
your minds and your eyes and your 
hearts to all the wonders of the world 
we live in. 

Q. If you were granted one wish, 

what would you wish for and 

A. Our future may well depend on a 
global-shared respect between people 
and for the planet. I would wish for 
this to happen. 

Q. What is your fondest memory of 
your college years? 

A. Being a 40-year-old graduate stu- 
dent with nearly 20 years of private 
practice experience opened my mind 
to an intellectual understanding of 
my profession.

seniors had the opportunity to study 
in Italy. Gerber said he encouraged 
other students to study abroad. 

"We were able to look at the 
great works of architecture and how 
the people and culture of the coun- 
try formed the architecture," Gerber 
said. "There is such a strong rela- 
tionship between culture and archi- 

Studying through this coopera- 
tive exchange, students learned 
alongside architecture majors from 
various colleges. 

"I encourage students to go be- 
cause it will change your life and the 
way you look at architecture," said 
McNamara, who spent a spring 
semester studying in Italy. 

During their final year, students 
learned professional guidelines. 

"A class might work on a project 
with a real client," McNamara said. 
"Students had the benefit of finding 
out what real clients need." 

The semester projects, like de- 
signing a new courthouse for Riley 
County, were assigned to architec- 

ture students who learned to solve 
structural needs based on real sites. 

"We went to the site and looked 
at the surrounding buildings," 
Gerber said. "We discussed the func- 
tions of each space and then planned 
for the spatial relationships." 

To visualize their designs, mod- 
els were built during each phase of 
the project. Students had the benefit 
of reviewing their projects with their 
studio instructor and peers critiqued 
other projects within the studio. 

"The peer critiquing is the most 
valuable part of the studio review. It 
develops their critical thinking," 
McNamara said. "They have to 
develop strong egos and become 
confident in themselves." 

Professional clients had the ben- 
efit of circulating ideas inexpen- 
sively. Although the actual building 
plans took months to finalize, stu- 
dents gained hands-on knowledge. 

However, devoting time to 
projects had drawbacks, Gerber said. 

"I miss just being more social," 
he said. "I have lived with these 
people day in and day out."

Surveying students endured the 
k brisk fall wind and curious 
stares of onlookers as they 

learned the art of measuring land. 
Susan Gerth, instructor of civil 

engineering, taught Elementary 

Survey Engineering, a three-hour 
course designed 
to teach the ba- 

"The actual 
definition ofsur- 
veymg is the lo- 
cation of points 
or relative points 
found on or near 
the earth's sur- 
face," Gerth 
said. "The class 
deals with locat- 
ing points. We 
find horizontal 
distances, angles, 
elevations and 
work with cal- 
culations that 
follow these 

Brian Une- 
kis, senior in ar- 
chitectural engi- 
neering, said the 

class dealt with the arrangement of 


"We do stadia traversing, which 

means we find the elevation of points 

relative to other points," he said. 

The class was required for stu- 
dents in several different majors. 

"We have quite a few students 
who are required to take it but are 
not engineers," Gerth said. 

One of these students was Barbra 
Jones, senior in horticulture. She 
said the hardest part about surveying 
was leveling the instrument. 

"It has to be precisely level be- 
fore you even start," she said. 

Ken Williams, sophomore in 
architectural engineering, said it was 
difficult to be precisely level. 

"We are surveying around 
Anderson Hall. We are drawing the 
contours of elevation, and the land 
is very uneven," Williams said. "If 
our calculations are off, it disrupts 
our equations." 

Ryan Leathers, sophomore in 
construction science, said the labs 
were what he liked most. 

"It's nice to spend time out- 
doors," he said. "If the weather gets 
really bad, though, we stay inside." 

Gerth said the students occasion- 
ally had to withstand unpleasant 
weather conditions. 

"We generally don't go out if it's 
raining because of the equipment," 
she said. "However, we've gone 
out in some miserable weather." 

The students faced obstacles on 
campus that they would encounter 

by Paula Murphy 

in their future careers. 

"Sometimes in construction ar- 
eas, there will be roped off areas they 
can't get to, or trucks may be parked 
in the way," Gerth said. "If they 
have to survey across a street, they 
may run into vehicle traffic." 

The students dealt with these 
problems and learned to cooperate 
with others. They worked in the 
same groups throughout the entire 

"The class is fun because you get 
to know your group well," said Eric 
Kirchhofer, senior in civil engineer- 
ing. "In our group, there's a huge 
diversity of people and majors." 

Leathers said the surveying ex- 
perience was important. 

"When I'm employed, I'll need 
to know some of the general con- 
cepts even if I don't have to do the 
surveying myself," he said. "I'll need 
to make sure the surveying is done 
correctly, and that the site chosen is 
suitable for the building needs." 

Steve Lashley, sophomore in civil 
engineering, said the worst part about 
surveying on campus was trying to 
communicate across vehicle traffic. 

"We yell, scream and use hand 
signals to communicate with each 
other," Lashley said. "Sometimes 
people look strangely at us, and we 
just laugh. We know what we are 
doing is for a reason."

through the canyon, gouging 
out deep crevices and launch-

Archer said that while the geo- 
logical formations at Tuttle Creek 
were not the only formations re- 
vealed by the floodwaters in the 
area, they were the most impressive. 

"They are by far the best in 
Kansas and the central U.S.," he 
said. "There are several sights, such 
as at Milford, but they are not as big 
or spectacular. They're not on this 
type of scale." 

Archer said the formations pro- 
vided students in his History of 
Geology class with the opportunity 
to apply what they read in text- 

"This gives a sense of how ge- 
ologists really collect data and helps 
the stuff students read in the text 
make more sense," he said. 

Tim Stevens, senior in geology, 
said he agreed. 

"It's interesting to actually see 
what we study from the textbook," 
he said. "It's much more memo- 
rable when you can actually see 
something, as opposed to reading or 
listening to a lecture about it." 

Jason Davis, sophomore in geol-

him understand the material pre-

Because of their easily distinguished 
layers, students found the formations 
at Tuttle more valuable to study than 
others they had looked at in the past.

Another exciting find came when 


Jason Robben, junior in construc-

The jaw fossil was significant 
because of its size and because shark 
fossils were rare in the area, Archer 

The discovery also led to in- 
creased numbers of people visiting 
the canyon. Stevens said he thought 
this would lead to more important 

"It's good that people do get out 
and see it," he said. "The more 
people who come out here, the 
more finds there will be." 

While excited to study the for-

dents were initially overwhelmed at 
the destruction inflicted by the flood

feel very small and insignificant," he 
said. "It reinforces the idea that the 
forces of nature are stronger."

Protecting the

T\ he University had a state- 
of-the-art dummy that was 
special to parents oflittle leagu- 
ers, said Hugh Walker, professor of 
mechanical engineering. 

"In the last few years there have 
been little leaguers who have been 
hit in the chest with a pitched ball," 
he said. "The lick has been severe 
enough to stop their heart." 

Companies concerned about this 
danger developed chest protectors. 
Walker said Easton Corp. wanted to 
compare four different vests. 

Halfway through the project, 
Walker received word that General 
Motors couldn't loan a crash dummy 
for the tests. This resulted in the 
development of K-State's dummy. 

Walker and Rob Dorgan, in- 
structor of mechanical engineering, 
designed a dummy that had thin 
wires running from its sensors to a 
computer, which allowed the pro- 
tection measures to be analyzed. 

"Force inducers are put under 
the padding. They measure the force 
magnitude as the ball comes in on 
the chest," Walker said. 

It was important for the vest to 
diffuse the ball's impact, he said. 

"It's (the impact) spread out, so 
the body can take it better, kind of 
like a glove, shoulder pads or a 
football helmet." he said. 

The computer helped Walker 
plot the points where the force was 
diffused. He said it looked like a 
contour map ofland, with the circu- 
lar lines representing specific forces. 

"Certain pads kept everything 

below a specified amount. Others 
let a given portion exceed that 
(amount), while others seemed not 
to do nearly as well," Walker said. 

The conclusions were submitted 
to Easton Corp. Although there was 
a large market 
for safety equip- 
ment, Walker 
said the com- 
pany did not 
sponsor the tests 
with the intent 
to increase their 

"One of the 
things that im- 
pressed me was 
groups willing 
to put a little 
money into 
finding out what 
this (problem) is 
— not just make 
a buck selling it 
(the vest)," 
Walker said. 

Society was 
beginning to 
understand the 
need for safety, 
he said. 

"I think as a 
society, we're 
becoming more aware how certain 
things can be changed. We aren't 
talking about a great amount (of 
deaths)," he said. "The number of 
deaths is probably less than 1 percent 
of the little leaguers playing, but a 
death is a death." 

Walker lines up a baseball-pitching 
machine to a dummy wearing a chest 
protector to study the effects of the balls

Q. What is the most challenging 
aspect of your job? Why? 

A. Tlie most difficult part of my job is 
having to say "no " to good ideas. 
An organization that attempts to do 
everything often never achieves ex- 
cellence in any of its activities. Often 
it is necessary to turn down a good 
opportunity in order to focus on 
higher priorities. 

Q. If you could invite one famous 
guest to dinner, who would it 
be and why? 

A. My decision on whom to invite to 


dinner would depend entirely on my 
mood. In a serious moment, I would 
want to discuss religion with Jesus. 
In a lighter mood, I would invite 
Steve Allen, who has a wonderful 
quick ivit. Currently, I am very 
hungry, so I think I'll invite the 
great chef Julia Child and not worry 
about conversation. 
What do you like most about 

Tlte best part about K-State is 
values. The people here are nice to 
be with. I always have a good time 

with K-Staters whether it's a dean 's 

council meeting on a serious topic or 

a student picnic on a fall weekend 

after a football game. 
Q. What advice would you give to 

college students? 
A. Find fun in what you do. If you 

enjoy your job, you will never have 

to work for a living. 
Q. What is your fondest memory 

of your college years? 
A. Because my wife will read this, my 
fondest memory was meeting 

Maryrose Orban.

ft electric vehicles 

Plug into 


By Jeff Gamber 

T he University and 12 other 
national sites worked to 
makeelectric vehicles, which were 
expensive and limited in range and 
performance, an affordable reality. 

The project, which was spon- 
sored in part by the Kansas Electric 
Utilities Research Program, looked 
at ways to improve the practicality 
and capabilities of electric vehicles. 

"K-State was asked by the utility 
companies to manage an electric 
vehicle program, to investigate the 
feasibility, investigate the latest tech- 
nology, make recommendations of 
what vehicles to buy and to look at 
new technologies as they evolve," 
said James Hague, associate profes- 
sor of engineering technology. 

One reason the utility compa- 
nies were interested in electric ve- 
hicles was because they could be 
charged overnight, when the com- 
panies had excess capacity. 

"The utility companies recog- 
nize electric cars have a number of 
significant advantages. The compa- 
nies monitor their loads, and the 
electrical energy was heavy during 
the day, noon time and right after 
everybody came home from work," 
Hague said. "Electric cars, if they're 
designed and built properly, can be 
charged overnight when utility com- 
panies have a lot of energy capacity 
to sell to customers." 

The project had three electric 
vehicles and planned to acquire more 
in the future, Hague said. Only one 
of the electric vehicles was in work- 
ing condition. The other two needed 
new batteries, which accounted for 
much of the cars' high prices. 

The working vehicle was a 1 993 
Ford Escort station wagon, which 
was converted into an electric ve- 
hicle by Soleq Corporation in Chi- 
cago, Hague said. The converted 
vehicle was referred to as an EVcort, 
which stood for electric vehicle. 

The EVcort was driven daily by 
Jarrett Thummel, senior in eco- 
nomics, as part of the car's testing. 

"Thummel is our technician, and 
he drives an electric vehicle almost 
every day. He parks it at his house 
and charges it there in the eve- 
nings," Hague said. "He's found it 
costs less money to drive the electric 
vehicle than it does a gas-powered 

Hague said student involvement 
was important because they were 
the ones who would be leaders 
when electric vehicles came into 
common use. 

"As a professor, I work in this 
(electrical car testing), and I teach 
electrical engineering theory all the 
time, but the students are the ones 
who are going to make the differ- 
ence," Hague said. 

As the car's driver, Thummel 
was directly involved in the testing. 
He said the car had unusual charac- 

"It weighs about a thousand 
pounds more than a regular vehicle, 
and there's no 
power steering," 
Thummel said. 
"There's eight 
batteries that sit 
in front, and it's 
drive, so it's ex- 
tremely heavy. 
Turning it takes 
a global effort." 

The main 
weakness of 
electric vehicles 
was inadequate 
battery technol- 
ogy. The batter- 
ies used in the 
EVcort cost 
$3,000, which was considered cheap. 
However, the electric motors they 
used lasted a long time and required 
simple maintenance. 

Although electric vehicles are 
not practical now, Thummel said 
they will be in the future. 

"We're still waiting on the bat- 
tery technology (to improve)," 
Thummel said, "but eventually it' s 
going to have to happen." 

Instead of pulling up to a gas pump, 
the battery-operated vehicle is plugged 
into a regular 120-volt current. The 
entire recharging process usually took 
four to five hours. (Photo by Mike

Taking a stab at 


by Ienni Stiverson ^» 


If hey made lesson plans, graded 
papers and taught students, but 
they weren't teachers. In fact, 
these students weren't even educa- 
tion majors, but College of Business 
Administration ambassadors. 

One of their responsibilities was 
teaching a General Topics in Busi- 
ness class to students first entering 
the college. 

"We teach the class to help new 
students gain a better general knowl- 
edge of Kansas State and the things 
it has to offer," said Dale Silvius, 
business ambassador and senior in 
marketing and management. "We 
also like to help them get some idea 
about what major in the college 
they would like." 

The class helped students learn 
more about business programs. 

"The goal of the class is to pro- 
vide an avenue for students to be 
involved with the College of Busi- 
ness," said Kay Stewart, business 
ambassador adviser and the college's 
assistant dean. "We want them to 
feel like they belong to the college." 

Many of the ambassadors were 
more than just teachers. 

"Students teaching their class 
serve as role models and as mentors 
in some way," Stewart said. "A lot 
of the ambassadors get calls from 
their students and have discussions 
outside of class." 


The students in the class weren't 
the only ones who benefited from 
the program. Some ambassadors dis- 
covered teaching provided them an 
opportunity to grow. 

"The class helps me work on 
teamwork and compromising," said 
Jodi Dawson, business ambassador 
and sophomore in business admin- 
istration. "I'm a person who likes to 
do things my way and take charge. 
When you're working with other 
people to teach, you have to learn to 
get along." 

Silvius said the skills he improved 
through teaching will help him in 
his career. 

"Teaching the class helps you 
with your communication skills. 
You have to learn to communicate 
thoroughly so your students under- 
stand you," Silvius said. "Leading 
the class in discussions gives me 
experience that will be useful when 
I'm working and have to talk with 
co-workers. It also helps with my 
organizational skills." 

Besides teaching, ambassadors 
worked on several projects through- 
out the year. 

"We're trying to get more in- 
volved with the recruiting process 
this year," Dawson said. "Being 
involved with it will help the col- 
lege out because communicating 
with potential students verbally, 

rather than just through the mail, is 
more meaningful." 

Stewart supported the ambassa- 
dor program and their involvement 
in the recruiting process. 

"The ambassadors want to talk 
about K-State," Stewart said. 
"There's no better recruiter than a 
satisfied student." 

Ambassadors not only focused 
their attention 
on potential stu- 
dents, but also 
worked to keep 
strong ties with 

"It's really 
important that 
we stay in touch 
with our alum- 
ni," Dawson 
said. "Not only 
do they offer fi- 
nancial assis- 
tance, they serve as connections in 
the business world. Alumni are just 
as important to the college as the 
students are." 

Stewart said College of Business 
Administration ambassadors were 
the only group of ambassadors to 
decide their own goals and were an 
important part of the college. 

"Ambassadors add value to the 
college by what they do and who 
they are," Stewart said.

Tl heir course schedules looked 
like they were majoring in 
science and math rather than 
elementary education. 

Members of the National Sci- 
ence Foundation project took 
courses in geology, astronomy, 
physics and calculus, along with 
other science and math courses, to 
fulfill graduation requirements. 

"The purpose of the project is to 
improve the way we prepare el- 
ementary school teachers for math, 
science and technology teaching," 
said Gail Shroyer, NSF co-director 
and assistant professor of elemen- 
tary education. "The program also 
simultaneously enhances the way 
science is taught in schools." 

The NSF program began four 
years ago when the College of 
Education received a $1.6 million 
grant from NSF. 

Enimett Wright, the project's 
principle director and professor of 
foundations and adult education, 
said it was a five-year project, with 
the 1994-95 school year used ex- 
clusively to work with the program's 
graduates as a follow-up. 

To recruit students, brochures 
were sent to elementary education 
freshmen. A team of faculty mem- 
bers from the fields ofphysics, math, 
science, technology and elemen- 
tary education was formed to de- 
sign courses for the program. 

"We were looking for students 
who were committed to the pro- 
gram and who were enthusiastic 
about being in an experimental 
project," Shroyer said. "We went 
with the idea that all students should 
be successful in the program." 

Some applicants were appre- 
hensive about joining the program. 

"I had always been interested in 
science, but I was scared to take the 
higher level classes the NSF pro- 
gram required," said Karen Pearson, 
senior in elementary education. "I 
wanted to be in the program, 
though, because I wanted to be 
able to prepare my students for the 
21st century and beyond." 

The project also employed 
three clinical instructors who were 

elementary school teachers. They 
taught part of the day, then spent the 
rest of the day working on campus 
with students and instructors in- 
volved in the project. 

"When I saw that K-State was 
looking for three clinical instruc- 
tors, I applied because I wanted my 
school to become one of the profes- 
sional development schools, and I 
wanted to become stronger in math 
and science," said Melisa Hancock, 
clinical instructor and sixth-grade 
teacher. "The experiences I have 
gained have been wonderful." 

The project benefited the stu- 
dents and the 
schools. The 
students gained 
classroom expe- 
rience, and the 
schools re- 
ceived extra 
help in after- 
school clubs. 

"The pro- 
ject helped me 
expand the sci- 
ence, math and 
technology af- 
ter-school club 
at Woodrow 
Hancock said. 
"I started the 
club, but be- 
cause I was the 
only teacher 
working with it, I could only take 
20 children. NSF students initially 
helped me teach the after-school clubs, 
so instead of only being able to reach 
20 students, we now have about 1 60 
kids who participate." 

The NSF students were also re- 
quired to teach science and math 
lessons, which focused on various 
science and math concepts. 

"The program has given me ex- 
perience in front of the classroom, 
and it has given me the confidence 
to succeed in math and science 
courses," Pearson said. "It (the NSF 
program) has excited me about 
teaching science. I can't wait to go 
out into the schools and make sci- 
ence and math fun for my students."

them of items they need to include in their lab write-ups about their 
observations of the substance. (Photo by Cary Conover)

were selected by 
their teachers 
based on the po- 
tential they 
showed in math, 

regardless of their perfomiances in 

other areas.

"It is math enrichment," 
McAleese said. "I'm not really teach- 
ing them new skills. It's going a step 
further to challenge their thinking." 

McAleese completed one tutor- 
ing session a week in the fall semes- 
ter at Amanda Arnold Elementary 
School. The math methods students 
had to tutor 1 hours for one hour 
of credit. 

Randy Stitt, senior in elemen- 
tary education and math methods 
student, said he tried to use creative 
lesson plans. 

"I try to make a game from the 
worksheet, rather thanj ust give them 
the worksheet," Stitt said. "Some- 
times they (the kids) make a game 
up themselves, and if it works, then 
I let them go with it." 

Stitt, who tutored at Bluemont 
School, said being creative was dif- 
ficult but important. 

"If you don't have creativity, it's 
pretty hard to be a teacher. The class 
doesn't stop for you to think ofwhat 
you want to do next," Stitt said. 
"You always have to be creative 
enough to go right into it and keep 
their motivation high. If you give 
them a challenge, they'll go at it 
until they're done." 

McAleese also used creative les- 
son plans. In one tutoring session, she 
read "The House Thatjack Built" to 

her group of third-graders, and the 
children used geometric shapes to 
recreate scenes from the story. 

"It's a higher learning form," 
McAleese said, "and they don't re- 
alize it." 

McAleese said she wanted the 
children to have fun with math 
because if it became work, they 
wouldn't do it. 

The tutored students benefited 
from the sessions, and the students 
teaching gained classroom experi- 

"(The program) is an opportu- 
nity now, instead of waiting until 
they (math methods students) get 
their first teaching job," said Kristi 
Smith, math methods instructor. 

McAleese said the program 
helped her gain a better understand- 
ing of the children 

"It's a way to learn teaching 
through experience rather than just 
through theory," McAleese said. "I 
can predict what kinds of questions 
and problems the kids will have, and 
I'm usually reasonably close." 

McAleese said the math meth- 
ods tutoring program was an impor- 
tant part of her education. 

"The way of (learning in) the 
College of Education is changing to 
more classroom experience," 
McAleese said. "It's long overdue."

Library merits 

■a* <*MMf 


by Susan Hatteberc 


tudents wanting to study at 
Farrell Library found its quiet 
atmosphere had vanished. 
With Farrell's expansion came loud 
noises, and students and faculty had 
to adjust to the change. 

The construction of Farrell in- 
cluded an expansion to the east, 
which meant the Art Building had 
to be demolished, said Brice 
Hobrock, dean of libraries. 

"The state of Kansas indicated 
that we had only one alternative in 
construction, and that was to go to 
the east of Farrell," Hobrock said. 
"The architects preferred to go to 
the south, but the state said we had 
to expand east." 

Other obstacles stopped the con- 
struction from occurring in other 

"We could not expand to the 
south because Denison (Hall) is a 
more highly used building, and we 
could not replace the space," said 
Patrick Schaub, an architect from 
Brent Bowman and Associates. 

Constructrion on Farrell was 
scheduled to start in March, and a 
completion date was set for spring 
1996, Schaub said. 

"The expansion will enlarge the 
library by 153,000 square feet, which 
doubles the library space," he said. 

' 'The interior will also be rearranged, 
and the first floor will continue as 
more space for stacks, reading and 
studying rooms." 

Although the expansion would 
improve the library, it required the 
art department to move its opera- 
tion to Willard Hall. 

Gary Woodward, associate pro- 
fessor of art, said the main problems 
in moving were transporting the art 
supplies to Willard and the possibility 
of the space not being ready on time. 

The art students handled the 
move without much complaint, 
Hobrock said. 

"The only thing they said was 
they felt art was not a priority on 
campus," Hobrock said. "On the 
other side, students see the (new) 
space being more useful. That's the 
dominate attitude." 

Doug Urban, junior in fine arts, 
said it didn't matter to him where 
the art department was located. 

"The art building did have char- 
acter, and I hated to see it torn 
down, but I really thought we needed 
more room," he said. 

Hobrock said the move was a 
positive action. 

"The art department was in five 
different buildings, and the educa- 
tional benefits the younger students 

get from the older students can't 
happen very well," Hobrock said. 

The library's expansion also 
caused problems for students who 
tried to use it. Schaub said the con- 
struction reduced the amount of 
study spaces. 

"While the construction is going 
on, access to the building will 
change," Schaub said. "Books and 
people will be 
relocated since 
the entire struc- 
ture is being re- 

Farrell's old- 
est portion and 
the fifth floor of 
the newest part 
would be va- 
cated during the 

"We are 
compressing op- 
erations into the remaining space, 
and processing staff will be moved 
to the KSU Foundation building for 
the duration of the project," 
Hobrock said. 

Schaub said students and faculty 
would have to adjust to the changes 
until construction was complete. 

"It will be a little inconvenient 
for everyone," he said. 

"The expansion will 
enlarge the library by 
153,000 square feet, 
which doubles the 
library space."

by companies to improve their goods. 
"We test any products that can be 
perceived by the senses including 
food, paint surfaces, textiles and pa- 
per goods," said Hollingsworth. "On 
the average, we test something every 
day. The foods include salad, pizza, 
hot dogs, cereals and popcorn." 

The panelists were not told what 
they were testing, Hollingsworth 
said. They were given samples iden- 
tified only by three-digit codes. 

"Ifthey are testing cereal, ofcourse 
they can tell the food is cereal," 
Hollingsworth said. "What they don't 
know is the kind of cereal it is or what 
brand. The reason for this is it allows 
them to see differences. 

The panelists were not to judge 
products on how well they liked 

by Renee Martin 

them. To rid panelists of their biases, 
they underwent 1 20 hours of inten- 
sive training. Once the training was 
completed, they worked as appren- 
tices until their evaluating skills were 
advanced enough to serve on a panel. 

"When the panelists are working 
as apprentices, their data is not used, 
but we monitor it," Hollingsworth 
said. "Once their skills are up to a 
certain point, they are ready to be on 
a panel. The process takes approxi- 
mately six months." 

The panel was the only univer- 
sity-operated professional sensory 
panel in the U.S. and differed from 
other universities' panels because it 
was composed of community mem- 
bers instead of graduate students, 
faculty or staff. 

"We are the only one (center) 
like us affiliated with the Univer- 
sity," Hollingsworth said. "We reach 
out to the community for panelists 
but do limited advertising." 

Robinson heard about the job 
from a friend, but said she had to 
wait several years before she was 
hired. Although she enjoyed her 
job, Robinson said there have been 
tests she didn't like. One of these 
tests was for tomato sauce, which 
the panelists had to taste every morn- 
ing for six weeks. 

"We had to test the degrees of 
ripeness of tomatoes," she said. "Col- 
ored lights were used so we couldn't 
tell the differences between tomatoes 
by looking. It seemed like the test 
went on forever." 

The companies whose products 
were tested didn't always tell the 
center how the results were used. 

"When we test, the data col- 
lected is owned by the plant" 
Hollingsworth said. "Many compa- 
nies are very guarded with their 
information. We frequently operate 
on a need-to-know basis." 

Alice Ham, a panelist, said it was 
disappointing not to be told if their 
studies made a difference. 

"It would be nice to know if we 
have made an impact in the mar- 
ket," Ham said, "but I just enjoy 
doing the experiments. Every day is 
a new learning experience."

resident, takes a

such as sour, bit-

If you could invite one famous 
guest to dinner, who would it 
be and why? 

If I were considering someone from 
the past unth whom I would have 
enjoyed having dinnerwith, it would 
have been Leonardo de Vinci, as- 
suming of course, that I could speak 
Italian. He was a man of many 
talents and will bcforex'er recognized 
as a great artist. What isn 't as well 
knoum is his many contributions to 
engineering. He would have made a 
fantastic dinner guest. 

Q. What do you like most about 

A. Time are many positive things about 
K-State. \\1mt I like most are the 
positive people , particularly the stu- 
dents in the College of Engineer- 
ing, the alumni and the friends who 
have been so supportive of our pro- 

Q. What is the most challenging 
aspect of your job? Why? 

A. / would list two areas: personal 
problems and resource acquisition. I 
list personal problems because of the 

challenges ofbcingfair and compas- 
sionate and yet an effective admin- 
istrator. I list resource acquisition 
since this is our greatest need. 

Q . What advice would you give to 
college students? 

A. First, work harder than you play, 
butfind time to play. Secondly, take 
an occasional course that you don't 
have to take but would enjoy. 
Thirdly, remember your alma ma- 
ter. You will be forever knoum as a 
K-Stater, and we will be forever 
represented by you.

Tf he sign on the former Dutch 
Maid grocery store at 1 7th Street 
and Poyntz Avenue didn't dis- 
play the latest food sales but revealed 
the building's newest purpose — the 
Manhattan Civic Theatre Center. 

The Manhattan Arts Council and 
Manhattan Civic Theatre worked 
together to develop an art gallery 
and theater at the site. 

The College ofHuman Ecology's 
advanced interior design class, titled 
Contracts and Documents, helped 
redesign office space in the building 
next to the Dutch Maid building. 
These offices were temporary until 
the Dutch Maid building's offices 
were complete. 

"The students are doing space 
planning and planning of the mate- 
rials to be used," said Barbara Can- 
non, instructor of clothing textiles 
and interior design. 

Joyce Ferney, a local potter, ap- 
proached Cannon about the class 
working on the project. Cannon 
accepted because it provided stu- 
dents hands-on experience. 

"The project offers the students 
the chance to work with real people 
in a real situation," Cannon said. 

The students divided into three 
groups, each responsible for their 
own floor plans. 

"One group will be using a com- 

puter to do their planning, and the 
other two groups will be doing it 
manually," Cannon said. 

The class started the project in 
mid-September and had three meet- 
ings with the client. 

"All three groups met with the 
client and asked 
what they 

needed, their 
working condi- 
tions and how 
many people 
work for them," 
said Keri Victor, 
senior in interior 

The students 
learned how to 
work with a cli- 
ent and im- 
proved their pre- 
sentation skills. 
Victor said the 
project took 
more work since 
it was for a client. 

"We have to 
think about a lot 
(of require- 
ments) and be 
more concerned with the planning, 
Victor said. "We have to take it 
more seriously because it is for real 
clients in our society." 

Ivoger Reed, senior in interior design, uses a circle 
template to outline two pottery wheels in the new design

was working on the design. Students in the class were not 
aware when they enrolled that they would get practical 
experience through working with actual clients. (Photo by

Day devoted to 


W by Sarah Kallenbach 

The rivalry between K-State 
and the University of Kansas 
may have been strong on the 
football field, but inside Union Fo- 
rum Hall Oct. 9, the competition 
was left at the 
door. Thejour- 
nalism schools 
from K-State 
and KU joined 
forces to spon- 
sor Journalism 
Day 1993. 

"The pur- 
pose ofjournal- 
ism Day was to 
promote coop- 
eration between 
the two schools. 
The day pro- 
vided an oppor- 
tunity to mingle 
with our pro- 
fessional col- 
leagues," said Carol Oukrop, director 
of the A.Q. Miller School of Jour- 
nalism and Mass Communications. 

"Technology has 
taken us from the 
muckraker's pencil to 
the hidden micro- 
phone, but at what 
point did we lose the 
nobility of protecting 
the public interest?" 

Marlin Fitzwater, 

former White House Press 

Secretary and K-State alumnus 

Marlin Fitzwater, tormer White 
House Press Secretary and K-State 
alumnus, was the keynote speaker. 

"We had been trying to get 
Fitzwater to come teach here, but 
time constraints prevented that," 
Oukrop said. "He did, however, 
show an interest in coming to speak, 
so naturally we jumped at the op- 

Fitzwater graduated from K-State 
in 1965. During his years on cam- 
pus, Fitzwater's love for journalism 
grew. The experience he gained 
working on the Collegian led him 
to the Manhattan Mercury, Topeka 
Capital-Journal and other newspa- 
per-related jobs. 

Eventually, Fitzwater's skills 
earned him a job in the White 
House. In his 10 years as press secre- 
tary, he worked with Presidents 
Reagan and Bush, making him the 
only press secretary to serve two 
presidents. Fitzwater spoke on be- 
half of Presidents Reagan and Bush 
approximately 700 times during his 

Chemical Engineering 

career. After his tenure in the White 
House, Fitzwater spent his time trav- 
eling, delivering speeches and writ- 
ing a book. 

The speech he delivered onjour- 
nalism Day was titled "Jurassic Park 
Journalism" and focused on the cor- 
ruption he said had become a part of 
journalism. He blamed the 
profession's corrosion on the fame 
and fortune people could achieve. 

"Technology has taken us from 
the muckraker's pencil to the hid- 
den microphone, but at what point 
did we lose the nobility of protect- 
ing the public interest?" he asked. 

Fitzwater explained as journalists 
strived to get a story at any cost, their 
morals and principles disappeared. 

"The principles are pure, the 
practices are not," Fitzwater said. 

The day ended with a banquet 
and football game, which Fitzwater 
said was another reason he returned 
to campus. 

"I just had to be here when we 
were 4-0," he said.

Tf heir days began early and 
ended late. 
Advanced students in the Col- 
lege of Veterinary Medicine often 
started their days at 5:30 a.m. and 
didn't stop working until late in the 

David Evertson, fourth-year stu- 
dent in veterinary medicine, said the 
early mornings 
were necessary 
because advanced 
veterinary stu- 
dents had to pro- 
vide care for ani- 
mals assigned to 

"All the cases 
you have must 
be cared for by 
7:30 a.m.," he 
said. "We feed 
and water the 
animals, take 
their tempera- 
ture and pulse 
and get their 
physical status, as 
well as keep 
records on how 
they are pro- 


Evertson said the responsibilities 
took hours to complete. 

"Everyone gets tired of the 
hours," he said. "Days can be 12 to 

14 hours long. If you get here at 6 
a.m., you are doing pretty good to 
be home by 8 p.m." 

In their final year of veterinary 
studies, students were required to 
take rotational blocks in seven dif- 
ferent fields of study. Each rotation 
lasted 6 to 7-1/2 weeks long and 
consisted of small animal medicine, 
small animal surgery, anesthesiol- 
ogy and radiology, equine, necropsy, 
toxicology and agricultural prac- 

Robin Dishman, fourth-year stu- 
dent in veterinary medicine, said 
students looked forward to the rota- 
tional blocks. 

"You spend your first three years 
waiting to get the opportunity to see 
how much you've really learned," 
she said. 

The rotations allowed students 
to apply knowledge learned in the 
classroom to diagnosing and treat- 
ing animals, Evertson said. 

"It (a rotation) gives you experi- 
ence and knowledge working with 
specific cases," he said. "The first 
years are more studying books. The 
last year is more practical and hands- 
on experience." 

Dishman said feeling nervous 
while treating her patients was nor- 

"It is all a part of the learning 
process," she said. "If you feel like 

by Shannon Yust 

you know exactly what to do all the 
time, you are fooling yourself. You 
should know there is always more to 
learn. They (instructors) teach you 
general background, and everything 
else has to come from yourself." 

Some rotations were intense and 
could lead to life or death situations, 
Dishman said. However, it wasn't 
the loss of a patient she said frustrated 
her the most, but having to deal 
with the patient's owner. 

"I think my frustrations come 
more from what is best for the 
animal isn't always best for the cli- 
ent," Dishman said. "You give your 
client the best options available to 
them. An animal may really need to 
be put down, but the client doesn't 
want it done." 

Although the students spent hours 
treating their patients, they weren't 
paid for their services. 

"We don't get paid anything," 
Evertson said. "Sometimes you feel 
like a slave." 

However, Dishman said time 
spent at the college was worth it. 

"You don't get paid with money. 
You get paid with experience," she 
said. "You can't put a dollar value 
on what you're learning. You have 
to learn from everything you do."

to do things I like to do, and it is good 
for me. I'm learning and meeting 
people. I think it will make me a

Tope said his job as a caretaker

injured animals.

animals that are hurt, as well as work- 
ing with the equipment that I will be 
using in a few years," he said.

opportunity, you can dispel a lot of 
that," Dishman said. "I think there 
are more people skills involved in 
veterinary medicine than in human 
medicine. You're treating the ani- 
mal, but dealing with the client. 
There is a lot more communication 
than most people believe."

Llamas undergo 



Sheared for their wool and 
used as pack animals, llamas 
were becoming more popu- 
lar to own. 

Because the export ofllamas from 
South America had been banned for 
many years, the U. S . stock descended 
from just a few individuals. As the 
llama population grew to more than 
35,000, owners became concerned 
with health problems, and inbreed- 
ing was suspected to be the cause of 
genetic abnormalities. 

Information on the defects of 
llamas was scarce. It wasn't until 
June 1993 when the first intensive 
study was completed by three vet- 
erinary researchers: Horst Leipold, 
professor of pathology and microbi- 
ology; L.W. Johnson, a Colorado 
State University professor; and T. 
Hiraga, professor from Japan's 
Rakuno Gakuen University. 

"It (llamas with defects) was a 
new species being developed, and 
nothing was known about it," 
Leipold said. "What we discovered 
was interesting." 

The two-year study researched 
166 llamas with congenital defects. 

The research consisted of clinical 
evaluations, X-rays and post- 
mortem examinations. Pedigree in- 
formation was collected, and data 

was tested for agreement with known 
genetic transmission patterns. 

The results from the study re- 
vealed 116 congenital defects, with 
nearly one-fourth of the defects skel- 
etal. Facial defects, including cleft 
palate and choanal atresia, were most 
common. Choanal atresia was an 
abnormality of the passageway be- 
tween the nose and mouth that 
prevented crias, or baby llamas, from 
breathing and nursing normally. 

Recognizing the congenital de- 
fects and the proper methods of 
controlling them in a genetic pool 
was important to the llama owners 
and breeders, Leipold said. 

He became involved in llama 
research five years ago when he was 
invited by a llama association to talk 
at an annual meeting in Salt Lake 
City. He reviewed what he knew 
about genetic defects in others spe- 
cies, and the actions taken to com- 
bat the defects. He said comparing 
species was a starting point to look- 
ing into the llama problem. 

"Dr. Leipold has done research 
with other species, such as horses or 
cattle, and knows when a defect is 
probably genetic," said Vrenda 
Pritchard, a lab technician in pa- 
thology and microbiology. "He will 
never tell you for sure that it is a 

genetic defect, but he's probably 
99.9 percent accurate." 

Many peo- 
ple relied on 
Liepold for his

Horse Around 

by Renee Dennis 

FUrom the tip of his black felt hat 
Ito the soles of his muddy boots, 
Pat Kayser fit the stereotypical 
ole of a cowboy. 

But this cowboy was anything 
jut typical. He was working on his 
doctoral degree in animal science, 
:oncentrating on equine reproduc- 
don, growth and development dur- 
ing the fetal stage. 

"I do a little bit of everything," 
aid Kayser, the new manager for the 
Horse Teaching and Research Cen- 
ter. "Today we're sloshing through 
the mud working on a parking lot. 
We're putting in a gravel lot." 

Kayser managed the unit, or- 
chestrated the work-study students 
and made sure the mares were prop- 
erly bred and foaled. 

Although they conducted re- 
search at the center, Kayser said 
education was the primary crux of 
the program and an aspect he en- 
joyed most. Four classes used the 
center's facilities daily, with Kayser 
teaching the reproduction class. 

"We're set up for teaching, ex- 
tension and research, with the main 
emphasis on undergraduate educa- 
tion," he said. 

After almost swallowing one of 
the sunflower seeds he had tucked in 
his cheek, Kayser went for a drink 
from the hose hanging near the 
weanlings' stable. 

As he approached, the young 
horses became eager for attention. 
Since they had been handled fre- 
quently, they anticipated human 
contact. As he scratched a weanling 
between the eyes, Kayser grinned. 

"I was a deskjockey in Georgia," 
he said. "Taking thisjob allowed me 
to do what I want to do, and that's 
be around horses." 

Before he came to Manhattan, 
Kayser taught at the University of 
Georgia for three years. 

"Georgia was nice, but I kinda 
had my eye on K-State for a while," 
he said. "It has a good reputation." 

Kayser worked to perpetuate that 
reputation since July 1 , his first day 
on the job. 

Randy Raub, assistant professor 
in animal science and the state ex- 
tension specialist in the equine area, 
was on the search team to fill the 
center's manager position. 

"We had several outstanding ap- 
plications, but it's obvious we made 
the right choice," Raub said. "On 
top of his experience with managing 
and breeding horses, he (Kayser) has 
ambition to get things done." 

Kayser said one of the reasons he 
accepted the position was because 
he would have freedom to research. 

"One of the reasons I wanted to 
come to K-State was because Dr. 
Raub is one of the top young equine 

researchers in the nation," Kayser 
said. "When I told him I wanted to 
do research in fetal growth and de- 
velopment, he was open to it." 

Kayser's piercing blue eyes light- 
ened with interest when he spoke 
about his favorite subject. 

"I like trying to make the best 
babies. A good cross comes from 
looks, disposition and train-ability," 
he said. "You 
want horses that 
are versatile, like 
a gymnast, with 
defined muscles 
and strength. 
You don't want 
type horses who 
can't maneu- 

Although he 
and his wife, 
Sandra, had lived 
in Colorado and 
Georgia, Kayser 
said he enjoyed 
living and teach- 
ing in Manhat- 

"You can find fancier places in 
Kentucky or Texas, but we try to do 
things right here," he said. "Profes- 
sors on the circuit think the under- 
graduates here are some of the best 
in the nation." 

During vaccinations, Kayser turns a 
running horse around in one of the 
pens. Kayser and two other workers had 
to sort out the single horse from the rest 
to administer preventive medicine.

THie spring semester saw 
the start of a unique program 
at K-State-Salina. 

The International Pilot Training 
Program is the only program in the 
world offering both of the major 
pilot training standards in use world- 
wide, Ken Barnard, head of the 
Aeronautical Department, said. 

The program consists of two 
initiatives, Barnard said. The first is 
a program that K-State-Salina pro- 
vides under a contract with 
McDonnell-Douglas Training Sys- 
tems. That program provides train- 
ing as part of a package deal that goes 
with the aircraft they sell to other 

"We have a contract with them 
to provide international pilot train- 
ing under the Federal Aviation Ad- 
ministration standards, much like 
we teach our own students here," 
Barnard said. 

The second initiative is through 
a contract with British Aerospace to 
provide training with the British 
Civil Aviation Authority standards. 

"The second point for the inter- 
national training is through British 
Aerospace. They use the Civil Avia- 
tion Authority type of training which 
is different than the FAA. We have 
approval and a contract to provide 
CAA training as an extension of the 
approved course out ofthe Preswick 

Flying College in Preswick, Scot- 
land," Barnard said. 

Between these two different stan- 
dards most of the countries in the 
world are covered, Barnard said. 

"There's two 
standards of pilot 
training in the 
world today, ba- 
sically. It's either 
the FAA training 
or the British 
Civil Aviation 
Authority train- 
ing. Most ofthe 
world that was 
under the colo- 
nization of the 
United King- 
dom still uses the 
British system. 
Most ofthe oth- 
ers use FAA. 
What we're do- 
ing here, in the 
medium, is both. 
We have the abil- 
ity and we have 
our instructors cross-trained so they 
can provide either training." 

The main reason the Preswick 
Flying College wanted to establish 
an extension was because of weather. 
Barnard said fair weather is espe- 
cially important during the initial 

stages of pilot training, when the 
pilot is first learning to fly. 

"What they want to do is use K- 
State-Salina as an extension of their 
own training base to take advantage

out his route. The students participated in a new program at 
K-State-Salina that certified pilots for the U.S. and British air 
systems. (Photo by Cary Conover) 

of the fair weather here to do the 
VFR (visual flight rule) type of train- 
ing, which is important for the ini- 
tial stages of flight training. You 
want good weather when you're 
first learning to fly."

class, more stu-

Salina for the same 
training. (Photo by

(Continued from page 139) 

He said when the pilots are expe- 
rienced and learning to fly by instru- 
ments, the weather is not so critical. 

"Later stages when you're on 
instruments and so forth and have 
more experience the low clouds, 
low visibility, and high winds 
that they have in Scotland more 
so than here doesn't really affect 
the training that much. To get a 
continuity in the training they 
want to do the initial training 
here, and the advanced training 
back in the bad weather in Scot- 
land," Barnard said. 

Barnard said Preswick chose K- 
State-Salina because of their experi- 
ence and reputation for quality. 

"The reason they chose Kansas 
State University versus any other 
university is because of the high 
quality and the high standards that 
we emanate here and also because of 
our previous experience with an- 
other company in Scotland a couple 
years ago." 

He said that it was significant that 

K-State-Salina was chosen out of all 
possible sites worldwide. 

"We're very fortunate they chose 
us. They could have gone anywhere 
in the world and yet they came here 
because they felt that our facilities 
and personnel here were the highest 
quality that they've seen anywhere," 
Barnard said. 

He said the program will benefit 
students in many ways. One benefit 
is the lower cost of attending the 
training program here compared to 
attending in Great Britain. 

"It typically costs $110,000 to 
$115,000 to go through the British 
training school. You get the same 
flying hours and basically same pro- 
gram here for $15,000." 

Barnard said another benefit of 
the international training program 
for students was interaction with 
international students from other 
cultures early on in their education. 
He said that due to the international 
nature of commercial flying, an abil- 
ity to interact easily with people of 
other cultures is very valuable.

Driving School, discuss Xu's technique.

hoods trying to find the perfect spot to

Simon had devised a routine 
k by his eighth driving lesson. 
" Seatbelt. Doors locked. Steer- 
ing wheel adjusted. Look in rear- 
view mirror. Signal to pull out from 
curb. Pull down gearshift. Slowly 
push on the gas pedal. 

The man to his right whispered, 
trying to keep Simon relaxed. 

"I'm going to keep pretty quiet 
and see how good a job I've done 
teachingyou," saidjerome Oberle, 
Little Apple Driving School in- 

Simon Xu's first months in Man- 
hattan marked many firsts. The first 
time he was in the United States, the 
first time he lived in what he called 
a small town and the first time he 
was in the driver's seat of a car. 

Xu, a graduate student in jour- 
nalism and mass communications, 
had wanted to learn how to drive 
since he was a teenager. But in 
Beijing, his homeland, only a select 
group knew how. 

A professor of Xu's knew he was 
interested in learning to drive and 
helped him get into the driver's seat. 
The car, driving and the United 
States were all new to Xu. He ar- 
rived from Beijing a week before 
classes started to stay for one year. 

Xu Xiaoge, his birth name, pre- 
ferred to go by Simon Xu in the 
United States because it was easier 

by Kristeen Young 

for Americans to pronounce. 

His name wasn't the only change 
he'd made since his arrival. He also 
moved to the other side of the desk. 
A teacher in Beijing, he became a 
student in the United States. He 
qualified to be a Fulbright Research 
Scholar and had one year to com- 
plete his master's degree. 

His adviser, journalism professor 
Paul Parsons, said most students 
didn't complete their master's de- 
gree that quickly. 

"He is on a fast-paced program. 
His (program) is focusing heavily on 
studies," Parsons said. "We're going 
at a fast pace so he can return home 
on schedule." 

Parsons was a Fulbright professor 
at the China School ofjournalism in 
Beijing. Xu assisted Parsons inside 
and outside the classroom through- 
out the year. 

"Simon was my waiban, a Chi- 
nese word for liaison, helper, trouble- 
shooter," Parsons said. "Whenever 
I had a need, I would ask him." 

Xu, a teaching assistant for Par- 
sons, also taught four years of Jour- 
nalistic English, an English course 
for newspersons, and assisted other 
American professors. 

Before he was an English in- 
structor, he worked for a Chinese 
organization similar to the Associ-

Q. If you could invite one famous 
guest to dinner, who would it 
be and why? 

A. Former President Harry Truman. I 
have long admired the work and 
contributions of him. President 
Truman was never afraid to make 
tough choices when the political con- 
sequences were unfavorable. I would 
be interested in his assessment of the 
current issues. History has docu- 
mented that our country was in good 
condition after his administration.

Q. If you were granted one wish, 
what would you wish for and 

A. I would wish for simpler times when 
we were not so bogged down in 
bureaucracy and redtape. When 
somethinggoes wrong in our society, 
we spend far too much time assign- 
ing blame rather than trying to fix 
theproblem. Consequently, we have 
developed in this country a never- 
ending set of rules and procedures to 
govern things that common sense 

would probably solve. 

Q. What is your fondest memory 
of your college years? What 
college (s) did you attend? 

A. One of my fondest memories was 
the 1964-1965 basketball season 
at Oklahoma State University. The 
Cowboys, under the leadership of 
Mr. Hank Iba, won the Big Eight 
Championship. That was also the 
year that our first child was born. 
No, we didn 't name her "Hank, " 
but I wanted to.

With a master's degree, Xu 
wanted to introduce new classes 
into the China School o0ournalism's 
curriculum. Par- 
sons hoped the 
information Xu 
learned would 
benefit others. 

"He is going 
to be in a posi- 
tion of influence 
on a lot of future 
Chinese jour- 
nalists," Parsons 
said. "I don't 
want him to end 
up in jail over 
some of what 
we've taught 
him. But I want 
him to look criti- 
cally at the 
United States 
and Chinese 
media and teach 
his students to do 
the same." 
Xu said he 

was not permit- 
ted to teach some of what he learned 
at K-State. Lessons from his media 
ethics class would get him in trouble 
if he applied the same ethics to the 
government-owned publications in 

"We (in China) consider the 

U.S. to be a media-advanced coun- 
try in technology and theoretical 
studies," Xu said. "We have a lot to 
learn from the U.S. in the field of 
mass communications." 

After teaching, Xu wanted to 
become a foreign correspondent and 
travel abroad. He said getting a 
master's degree and a driver's license 
would make him a better job candi- 

"It is a requirement to have a 
license if you want to be a foreign 
correspondent. It is too expensive 
for an agency to have to assign a 
driver for you every time (you cover 
a story)," Xu said. "With a license, 
I can be stationed somewhere out of 
China with more opportunity to 
write news stories." 

Parsons knew the advantages a 
driving license would create for Xu 
in China. He arranged for the les- 
sons, with the $275 fee provided by 
the Reader's Digest Foundation. 

At Xu's last lesson, he learned to 
parallel park and to drive through 
heavy traffic. He then drove himself 
to the Department of Motor Ve- 
hicles and took the eye exam. 

After he pulled into his residence 
hall's parking lot, he ran down his 
checklist again. Gearshift to the top 
of the steering wheel. Lights turned 
off. Parking break pulled. A deep 

"You'll do better with practice, 
Simon," Oberle said. 

"Yep, practice makes perfect," 
Xu said, "and it takes time."

Planners keep life 


by Natalie Hulse 

C^ ollege survival required cer- 
tain necessities including food, 
^0 water, sleep — and a stu- 
dent planner. 

Planners helped students remem- 
ber class schedules, assignment due 
dates, siblings' birthdays and campus 
events, among other important dates. 

"I had too much going on to 
keep in my head," said Brent Malin, 
senior in English. " I did just keep a 
notebook, but it wasn't very orga- 
nized, so I bought a planner. I write 
in appointments and anything I need 
to remember." 

Planners made the unorganized 
organized. Students said the key to 
successful planning was to write fu- 
ture reminders and look back on the 
clay's activities frequently. 

"I'm very disorganized," Malin 
said. "I have to refer to my planner 
quite often. If I lost it, I could 
eventually piece back together what 
I need to do, but I'd wonder what 
stuff I missed that day." 

Hayley Briel, sophomore in el- 
ementary education, used her plan- 
ner as a personal file. 

"Right now I have my mail, 
time card for tutoring, notes, meet- 
ing agendas, a set of pictures and 
phone messages in my planner," 
Briel said. "It's about six to seven 
times larger than when I bought it." 

The K-State programmer, which 
was distributed for the 17th year by 
the Union Program Council's pro- 
motions committee, was popular 
with many students. Jeff Strater, 
UPC program adviser and graduate 
student in student counseling/per- 
sonal services, said the planner be- 
gan as a resource for students. The 
planner listed campus events and the 
dates on which they occurred. 

"All 5,000 programmers sold out 
within the first week of classes," 
Strater said. "Students really liked the 
cover and layout design this year." 

Despite the success of the 1993 

K-State programmer, sales had dra- 
matically decreased over the years. 
Strater said they had to cut the 
quantity the bookstore ordered from 
10,000 to 5,000 planners. 

Technology took organization 
beyond the regular spiral-bound 
calendar. Electronic planners were 
also used to keep busy college sched- 
ules in order. 

"I have a Casio 32KB Digital 
Diary. It stores phone numbers, my 
schedule, reminders, and it has a 
calendar, alarm, the world time and 
a calculator," 
said Wade 
Baker, freshman 
in architectural 
engineering and 
history. "It 
makes me feel 
and with the 

Baker did 
not use all of his 
planner's fea- 

"It has a se- 
cret button to keep private mes- 
sages, but I don't use it because I 
never type anything in that I don't 
want anyone else to see," Baker said. 

However, he said his planner did 
have several useful features. 

"Every day I use the schedule 
and reminders when assignments 
are due," Baker said. " I set the alarm 
to go off before each class, so I'm 
never late." 

Some students discovered plan- 
ners were only useful if they could 
be found. 

"My planner still doesn't help 
me to be more organized because 
I'm always misplacing it," Briel said. 
"I've left it in my laundry pile and 
between the stacks at Farrell (Li- 
brary). Once I had to retrace my 
steps all day, and I finally found it in 
the Union." 

"Right now I have my mail, time 
card for tutoring, notes, meeting 
agendas, a set of pictures and 
phone messages in my planner. It's 
about six to seven times larger than 
when I bought it."

"Vashti," a 1 6th century Scottish woman 
who was fed up with the lack of knowl- 
edge in the world. Organizations par- 
ticipating in the carnival used colorful 
banners and gimmicks to capture the 
attention of possible new members. This 
was the 34th year for the carnival, and 
111 campus organizations had booths 
in the K-State Union. (Photo by Cary

by Claudette Riley 


"ne hundred and eleven organizations gathered in 
the K-State Union Sept. 13 to give new students a 
chance to browse through material provided by club 
sports, honor societies and interest-based groups. 

Large banners and gimmicks were designed to attract 
potential membership at the 34th annual Activities 
Carnival. Interested students asked questions and col- 
lected information sheets about the clubs. 

Responsibility for the carnival switched from the 
Union Program Council's Special Events Committee 
to the Promotions Committee. 

"Promotions has mainly handled advertisement for 
events. They chose to bring in Jeb Bolin, a comedienne 
and played music," said Becky Keller, junior in human 
ecology. "The turnout was about the same as last year, 
but there was more of a festive atmosphere." 

Students said the carnival served as a good opportu- 
nity for them to learn about campus organizations. 

"This is really the only time students come in under 
one roofand explore all their options and interests," said 
Tanya Long, senior in management. "It is harder 
drawing them in later because they get busy." 

Cindy Glotzbach, Students for the Right to Life 
member and sophomore in civil engineering, distrib- 
uted pamphlets and talked to interested students. 

"We set up tables in the Union throughout the year 
and are constantly wanting our issues to be heard," she 
said. "This carnival is an important way to get our 
literature out." 

Members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, 
a historical recreation group, visited with interested 
students and displayed recreated props from the period 
between 16 A.D. to 1600 A.D. Dressed in clothing 
reflective of that era, members handed out pamphlets 
promoting the arts. 

Other groups used visual aids and giveaways to 
convey their messages. The Union Program Council 
had students fill out questionnaires. One questionnaire 
rated students' interest in planning for upcoming films. 

Beth Cauble, freshman in apparel design, worked at 
the Future Homemakers of America Alumni table. 

"We are trying to gather names of people who were 
involved (in FHA) in high school," Cauble said. "There 
is a demand for those to return and judge high-school 
students' work." 

As a new student at K-State, Cauble was interested 
in looking at other displays. 

"When I'm relieved (from working), then I'll have 
a chance to look at other clubs," she said.

Students chosen for honoraries like Chimes, Spurs and Alpha Epsilon Delta gain 
leadership skills and perform community service projects to help them acquire 

the extra edge 



/ampus-wide honoraries provided students opportuni- 
ties in leadership, community service and diversity. 

Chimes member Judy Thompson, junior in human 
development and family studies, said the most important 
aspect of the junior honorary was the diverse group of 
people who were members. 

"To me, diversity is important," Thompson said. "It's 
important for people to know what Chimes has to offer." 

Chimes' fall project was Family Weekend, Oct. 22-24. 
Chimes sponsored an essay contest, and the winner's family 
was honored. The contest was based on the nominees' 
community involvement and encouragement for their 
students' education. 

Cindy Liu, junior in computer science, won the essay 
contest. She wrote about Sherry Wright and Dennis Blair, 
Manhattan. Liu, a native of China, lived with Wright and 
Blair while she attended the University. 

The campus-wide honoraries were selective. The sopho- 
more honorary Spurs received 300 applications. Out of 

by Lisa Elliott 

those applicants, 80 were given interviews, but only 35 
people were inducted into the organization. 

Greg Roth, secretary for Spurs and sophomore in 
agricultural economics, said sometimes the selection pro- 
cess came down to who was having a good day. 

Students also had the opportunity to join honoraries 
within their specific majors. 

Susan Gormely, faculty adviser for Alpha Epsilon Delta, 
a health honor society, said the club didn't turn away as 
many applicants as the campus-wide honoraries did. 

Jennifer Abel, AED vice president andjunior in biology, 
said AED encouraged members to become involved be- 
cause it gave them an edge for getting into medical school. 

"AED is all encompassing for pre-professional health 
majors. In addition to being an honorary, we are a service 
and social group," Abel said. "We brought in alumni and 
speakers for each group represented in our club. The panel 
was informal, and we were able to discuss topical issues and 
new challenges in the job world."

resh off of two national championships in three years, debate team members 

work to build a winning tradition with strong 




hey were defending national champions looking for 
a repeat. 

The K-State Debate Team won two national cham- 
pionship titles in the last three years, and Susan Stanfield, 
debate coach and speech instructor, said the team 
planned to stay on top. 

Being a member of the debate team required a large 
time commitment, Stanfield said. The squad generally 
traveled to tournaments three of every four weekends. 
Stanfield said the team spent 30-40 hours per week 
working on debate, not including tournament and 
travel time. 

"We spend a lot of time talking about evidence," she 
said. "We focus heavily on the national tournament and 
on the type of style we see at nationals." 

by Aaron Graham 

Part of the reason for the team's success was its 
location. K-State was in the top debate district in the 
country, Stanfield said. The district included Missouri, 
Kansas and Oklahoma. 

"Most of the innovation takes place in the Midwest 
in terms of style and arguments run," she said. "The 
Midwest style is faster and more evidence-oriented." 

Because the school competed in the toughest dis- 
trict, debating other schools in the district was good 
practice and helped prepare them for the national 
tournament, Stanfield said. 

"It's hard to be good from California or the East 
Coast," Stanfield said. "Everyone that's good is in this

oral defenses 

(Continued from page 154) 

K-State's tough district required the team to work 
hard to keep the winning tradition growing. Stanfield 
said the team was already building on that tradition 
when she arrived in fall 1990 to begin her first job out 
of college. 

"They were moving in that direction when I got 
here," Stanfield said. "It (the Midwest tradition) keeps 
building on itself. Graduates (in the district) go to 
graduate school in the area, and they stick around this 
district. It's been this way for about eight years." 

Stanfield said the team consisted of friends as well as 
co-workers, which also played a role in the team's 
success. Taleyna Beadles, debate team member and 
senior in radio television, agreed the element of friend- 
ship was crucial to the team members. 

"Everybody's really close this year," Beadles said. 
"Over Christmas when the dorms weren't open, we 
spent a lot of time at our coach's house playing Sega." 

The team's new freshmen members made the car 
rides to area tournaments more lively and interesting, 
Beadles said. 

Jason Dechant, debate team member and freshman 
in political science, said team members worked well 
together and enjoyed their travel time. 

"The team is very amiable, and we enjoy traveling 
and working with each other," he said. "Our trips are 
really exciting. We discuss our strategy on the way 
there, and on the way back, we enjoy our victories or 
sleep off our losses." 

The rides home were mostly jubilant. 

The team's hard work and Stanfield's coaching 
ability also contributed to the wins, Beadles said. 

"Everybody works really hard," she said, "and then 
Sue (Stanfield) explains to people what all that work 
means and how we can use it." 

Stanfield said her ability as a coach was not as 
important to the team's success as their close-knit 

"I don't think we could do it if we didn't care about 
each other," she said.

ogy, speed talks

he temperature dropped below freezing, but the 
cold weather didn't stop the Union Program Council's

"I have completely gone crazy to go camping in 30- 
degree weather," said Leigh Davis, sophomore in 
dietetics. "I knew it was supposed to be cold this time 
of year, but I didn't think it would be this cold." 

The group traveled to the Ozarks for the Nov. 5-7 
weekend. The trip was one of six or seven adventures 
ORC planned each semester. 

"We like to have one trip, maybe two, a month," 
said Brian Sweatland, ORC chairman and senior in 
political science. "The trips are reasonably priced. They 
range anywhere from $12 to $60. Usually you can plan 

by Sarah Huerter 

on spending about $25 for a trip." 

The camping trips helped participants improve their 
camping skills, Sweatland said. 

"It's excellent for outdoor education because ORC 
supplies food and cooking equipment, but you're on 
your own the rest of the trip," he said. "There is no

others for help," Sweatland said. "For instance, if you 
have never been camping, someone in the group will 
teach you how to set up your tent and help you cook." 

This method worked well for the group at their 
campsite in Bennett Springs, Mo. The group went on 
an afternoon hike, with the level of difficulty deter- 
mined by a group decision. Incorrect turns put the 
group onto the wrong trails, and 
they ended back at their starting 
point. However, a few of the expe- 
rienced hikers and map readers got 
everyone back on the right trail. 

Each ORC trip was based on a 
cooperative wilderness adventure, 
which was a shared way to solve 
problems while camping. The phi- 
losophy emphasized making group 
decisions and working together. 
Using this philosophy made every 
camping adventure exciting and 
sometimes physically demanding, 
Sweatland said. 

"By working within a coopera- 
tive wilderness adventure, it makes 
each trip different," he said. "Every- 
one must have insurance and sign an 
emergency contact sheet just in case 
anything happens because some ad- 
ventures can be dangerous, but they 
are always fun. We never make 
decisions that could put someone in 
a life or death situation." 

The trips created a faithful fol- 
lowing, and spaces usually filled up 
quickly, committee members said. 

"I have been camping many times 
in my life, and I wanted to go on a 
UPC trip," said Miriam Litfin, jun- 
ior in dietetics. "I had heard many 
people talk about how fun they 

She had wanted to go on other 
trips but said she didn't have time. 

"I promised myself that I would not miss this last 
trip," Litfin said. "This trip has been very rewarding, and 
I plan on going on another UPC trip."

radition and national pride motivated the Puerto 
Rico Baila dancing group. 

Informally organized as a dance entry during Hispanic 
Awareness Week three years ago, requests to perform 
inspired members to form a recognized organization. 

"Our first presentation was in 1992," said Arleen 
Baiges, group leader. "We hadn't planned on forming an 
official dance group until we participated in Hispanic 
Awareness Week. We thought we should do something 
that had to do with Puerto Rico, at least do some dances 
for the Hispanic population on campus to get involved." 

Puerto BJco Baila practiced traditional national 
dances once a week and increased to daily practices the 
week before an important performance. 

"Last semester we did five shows," said Luis Figueroa, 
third-year student in veterinary medicine. "Each time 
we do five dances, and that lasts 25 to 30 minutes. There 
are nine dancers and a narrator, so people who don't 
speak Spanish will know what is going on." 

Baiges said the group took pride in sharing their 
native customs and dances with people, but they also 
strived to clear up misconceptions about their country. 

"Some people think I five onjalapenos and tortillas," 
she said. "We are hoping we can relay some information 
about how Puerto Rico is different from other Hispanic 
countries through our dance presentations." 

The group performed at Celebrating Holidays 
Around the World Nov. 16 in Justin Hall. A perfor- 
mance in Kansas City, Kan., March 30, 1993, led to an 
invitation to participate in a September multicultural 
celebration at Cal-State Fullerton in Los Angeles. 

"We performed at the National Collegiate Person- 
nel Convention in Kansas City, and a guy from Cal- 
State Fullerton saw us and asked us to perform at their 
university," Baiges said. "It was a wonderful experi- 
ence. They asked us if we could come back next year." 

Members said word-of-mouth was the club's best 
form of advertisement. 

"We hand out business cards when we perform, and 
if people are interested in us performing for them, they 
call us," Figueroa said. "Arleen and I have been in 
charge of the group. If we are interested in an offer to 
perform, then we talk to the whole group and decide." 

The group members, who didn't know each other 
prior to meeting at K-State, discovered they shared the 
universal language of traditional Puerto Rican dances. 

"The dances I have known since I was a little boy," 
Figueroa said. "They are very traditional, but it is not 
like we go out and dance them every night."

Without uttering a single word, Talking 
Hands learn and share how to com- 
municate with a special type of 

lang uage 

by Angela Young 



[embers ofTalking Hands gathered at meetings and 
social functions, but they never uttered a word. 

Talking Hands focused on sign language and deaf 
culture, and the members followed a non-speaking rule 
during meetings. 

Tim Anderson, certified sign language interpreter and 
junior in sociology, said the non-speaking rule was for 
members to practice and sharpen their sign language skills. 

"It (the non-speaking rule) has turned out to be a 
benefit," Anderson said. "Most members feel they learn 
more and get more out of it if they are forced to sign 
rather than talk." 

Talking Hands was not a registered organization, but 
it attracted 10 to 20 members at the regular meetings. 
Most of the members involved did not have hearing 
problems but were curious about signing, Anderson said. 

Talking Hands provided an outlet for those wanting 
to improve their signing skills at K-State, said Gretchen 
Holden, director of educational personal programs. 

"If people have had a smattering of sign language, it's 
like learning any other foreign language. It's really fun 
when you have a chance to use it," Holden said, "but 
it's also a method for the hearing students to communi- 
cate with the deaf." 

Anderson's desire to communicate with his friends 
who were hearing impaired began his interest in sign 
language. He became more interested in the language 
after he met his wife, Kim, who is deaf. 

"When I first met her, I didn't really have a grasp of 
the language, but by the time we were dating, I was 
quite fluent," Anderson said. "I wouldn't say that I 
learned sign language just for her, but it was a big 
motivating factor." 

Talking Hands also taught members about deaf culture. 

"Deaf culture is dependent on the words of American 
Sign Language, which is a lot different from English," 
Anderson said. "The culture is rooted in the language." 

He said deaf cultural differences were the result of the 
different perspective of the world hearing impaired 
people had, and the alternatives they used to interact 
with hearing people. 

"Deaf students are isolated, so they appreciate the efforts 
of hearing students to learn sign language," Holden said. 

She said the organization benefited the hearing as 
well as the deaf. 

"The hearing get an opportunity to keep up with 
their signing skills," Holden said. "Through working 
on their skills, they encourage support and communi- 
cation for deaf students."

Lwenty-fwe years after his father, the late Robert Kennedy, announced his 
presidential bid at K- State, Rep. Joseph Kennedy Jr. visited the campus for 
Political Awareness Week and a chance to 

s peak out 

/oseph Kennedy Jr. 's high-profile keynote speech Oct. 
I served as a homecoming of sorts for the Massachusetts 

His father, the late Robert Kennedy, announced his 
presidential bid to an overflowing crowd in Ahearn 
Field House March 18, 1968, shortly before his assassi- 

"The last time I saw my father, he was boarding a 
plane to come to Kansas," Kennedy said. 

The speech highlighted a week of political aware- 
ness, sponsored by the Young Democrats. 

Getting Kennedy to speak was a victory for Michelle 
Smith, vice president for Young Democrats and junior 
in political science. Smith called on Rep. Jim Slattery, 
D-Kan., for assistance. 

"We begged, pleaded, held our breath because we 
wanted to bring in a speaker who had an alternative 
view," Smith said. "We thought Kennedy would make 
a connection with the young people. We also wanted 
a speaker who would appeal to a larger audience." 

Before introducing Kennedy to the group gathered 
in Union Forum Hall, Slattery urged young people to 
improve their 20 percent voter turnout. Calling Kennedy 
a true servant-leader, Slattery assured the group that 
both he and Kennedy wanted feedback from their 

"The fact is, your generation isn't even sitting at the 

by Claudette Riley 

table," Kennedy said. "You might be the first genera- 
tion in America who won't have as much as their 

As far as Kennedy was concerned, increasing student 
voter turnout began with getting students to care about 
and take part in political issues. He said the most 
important step young people could take was to involve 
themselves with politics on the local level. 

"Our country feces a great many challenges, and we 
need people who aren't afraid to make the tough 
decisions," Kennedy said. "All of us are going to have 
to struggle together, learn together and work for each 

Kennedy invited students to ask questions, and the 
debate quickly turned toward the North American Free 
Trade Agreement. 

"The United States has to be able to compete 
internationally," Kennedy said. "If we are not going to 
offer jobs, job training and hope, then we aren't going 
to be able to compete." 

Kennedy wrapped up his speech by encouraging 
students to tell their representatives how they felt about 
issues. He also expressed thanks for being invited for his 
first visit to Kansas. 

"I do very much appreciate the invitation to come 
here," Kennedy said. "Kansas doesn't have the most 
liberal reputation in all of the United States."

Lbove the sharp cleats that ripped the earth were 
hairy, muscular legs partially hidden by a wrap-around, 
blue, gingham skirt. Despite his attire, the player did not 
stand out in a sport that stressed individualism. 

The men's Ultimate (flying disc) team, the Flying 
Dorothys, were accustomed to receiving stares because 
of their uniforms. They changed their look at the 
beginning of the fall season. Before adapting their new 
name and skirts, they played Ultimate in tie-dyed shirts 
and were called the Purple Haze. 

"We aren't setting a precedent by wearing skirts. It's 
been done before. There is something fun about diving 
for a disc in skirts," said Bruce Broce, senior in anthro- 

Ultimate, the oldest club sport on campus, rose from 
obscurity by qualifying for sectional competition. The 
players further advanced by breaking into regional 
competition for the first time since the club's establish- 

The May regional contest took place in Champagne, 
111., and proved to be the team's toughest test. Excluded 
from competition after a double-elimination loss to the 
University of Iowa, the Flying Dorothys placed seventh 
and emerged as the 28th-ranked collegiate team. 

Ultimate, a game with two teams composed ofseven 
players each, was played on a regulation soccer field with 
two end zones. The object of the game was to pass a disc 
down the field. 

"Once a player catches the disc, they must stop their 
momentum and throw it," Broce said. 

To score, a player had to catch the disc within the end 
zone. Although winning was important, Broce said 
most members were involved because theyjust wanted 
to play the game. 

"Some guys have a crazy attraction to a flying disc, 
and they want a chance to play this game and travel with 
their friends," Broce said. "In Ultimate, there is an 
underlying principle called the spirit of the game." 

The spint of the game was important when fouls had 
to be called. 

"All the fouls are called by the players. We have 
heated competition, but there is an honor that carries a 
certain responsibility," Broce said. "A player has a 
certain responsibility to himself and the other players." 

The club's 38 players practiced three times a week. 

"We don't run drills. We just split into lights and 
darks (groups with colored shirts) and then play in 
teams. It is really laid-back."

Broce, the team's organizer, said the team had 
trouble finding places to practice. 

"We are without a practice field. We used to play in 
Memorial Stadium and behind Wefald's house. We 
even tried to use the new football facilities when they 
were empty," Broce said. "We didn't have any luck 
with those places and to continue to advance the 
program, we need more funding." 

Members of the women's ultimate team increased its 
membership and received support from the men's team. 

"We invited the women to travel to tournaments. 
We are supportive of the women's team," Broce said. 

Erin Hensley, women's team president and senior in 
anthropology, said she became interested in the game 
after playing with friends on the men's team. 

"I played on the men's team, and other women asked 
me about it. It spreads by word-of-mouth," Hensley 
said. "We've tried to get a team together for women 
before, but this was the first year it stuck." 

Publicity was the main goal of the team, she said. 

"I tell women who are interested that it is a great way 
to get and stay in shape," Hensley said. "I was in the best 
shape of my life when I was playing three times a week 
with and against the men's team. It is also a great excuse 
to be outdoors." 

Committed members of the women's team said they 
enjoyed the competitive spirit of Ultimate. Bridget 
Murphy, vice president of the team and 1993 graduate, 
said she began playing for fun and became hooked. 

"Everything is laid-back," Murphy said. "There is 
always a feeling that everybody comes to a game just to 
be able to play Ultimate and have fun."

ircle K International members focused on helping 
children by adopting the theme "Children First." 

"The organization focuses on the future. That is the 
point of the theme," saidJefFJones, graduate student in 
public administration. "We are involved in raising funds 
for children with an iodine deficiency." 

The organization was responsible for donating $100 
to the national iodine deficiency project. The members 
not only worked to raise the money, but also made 
donations from their own pockets. 

"To make the money we needed for the project, we 
stuffed Collegians and passed a happy jar around at our 
meetings," said Erin Wingert, Circle K president and 
senior in life sciences. 

The club members showed their interest in children 
in many other ways, including helping at Spooktacular, 
a Halloween event sponsored by Sunset Zoo. 

"Spooktacular was made up of two trails," Wingert 
said. "We passed out candy and treats on the path for 
smaller kids." 

Local businesses donated candy for the children, and 
Circle K members dressed up in costumes to hand the 
treats out. 

"Spooktacular was a way for kids to have a safe and 
fun Halloween," said Shelby Shannon, junior in pre- 
veterinary medicine. 

Circle K's attempt to help children continued 
throughout the year. Many projects, such as helping 
children in Special Olympics and Big Brothers/Big 
Sisters, were repeated each year. 

"We have worked with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters 
program," Jones said. "We took the kids without 
brothers and sisters to the park to play." 

The club extended their service projects from the 
children to the elderly. 

"Every year we go to Stoneybrook to Christmas 
carol. We were late this year, and by the time we arrived, 
many of the residents had gone to bed," Shannon said. 

In order to help the community, the club members 
worked with the local Kiwanis. With the Kiwanis' help, 
Circle K members whitewashed the Manhattan letters 
on Bluemont Hill and picked up trash in City Park. 

The members also kept busy with projects including 
Habitat for Humanity and a health fair that involved 
children's safety. Members said they worked on the 
projects because they helped people. 

"I wanted to be a part of Circle K when I found out 
that it was a service organization," Shannon said. "I just 
wanted to be involved."

/ampus came alive with the sights and sounds of 
Hispanic culture during Hispanic Awareness Month. 

The Latin-American Student Organization spon- 
sored the Latin-American Culture Night, which con- 
sisted of a potluck dinner and musical performances. 

Rob Anderson, Sigma Delta Pi president and senior 
in biology, said the organization helped students who 
took Spanish classes. 

"We do to try to help out and encourage the students 
in the lower levels of the language," Anderson said. 

Sigma Delta Pi members were not all Hispanic. 
Many were non-native Spanish speakers who pro- 
moted educational Spanish by offering free tutoring. 

"We go back and forth between being an honorary 
for the students taking higher classes and (tutoring) the 
students in Spanish I through Spanish IV," he said. 

The free one-hour tutoring sessions were at 8 p.m. 
Mondays and 2 p.m. Tuesdays in Eisenhower Hall. 
Spanish students said the sessions were beneficial. 

"Whenever I get stuck, I go over (to a session). 
Sometimes you just need one-on-one help," said Mike 
Simpson, senior in biochemistry. "They really know 
their stuff. It's free and has probably bumped me up a 
letter grade." 

The honorary, which was open to all students who 
had completed four units of Spanish, tried to have one 
or more events each month. 

Hispanic American Leadership Organization spon- 
sored a musical event Oct. 20 in Union Station. Jesus 
"Chuy" Negrete, founder and director of the Mexican 
Folklore Institute in Chicago, played his acoustic guitar 
and harmonica. 

Doug Benson, HALO adviser and associate profes- 
sor of modern languages, said he was pleased with the

"We were the leadership behind Hispanic Aware- 
ness Month," Benson said. "We looked for speakers and 
groups that would lend a new perspective, give insight

into Hispanic-American issues and represent positive 
cultural role models." 

Benson noticed some events were popular with 
people who were familiar with the culture, as well as 
those who weren't. 

"The Latino dance nights were very successful. 
About half of the people dancing were Hispanic, and the 
other half were curious," Benson said. "Those nights 
were a lot of fun for everyone, and I think it portrayed 
a lively part of our culture." 

Dance lessons, which took place in Union Station, 
were attended by about 30 people. The lessons pro- 
vided a medium through which HALO promoted its 

"HALO wanted to make people more aware of our 
culture whether they observed or participated, " Benson 
said. "We discovered people liked to participate in the 
Latin dance lessons." 

Although it served as a support group for U.S. 
Hispanics, HALO wasn't restricted to Hispanic stu- 
dents. The group's only membership requirement was 
having an interest in Hispanic culture. 

"Some of the Hispanics in HALO don't speak a 
word of Spanish. They were never taught at home," 
Benson said. "Others are native speakers. We all put on 
masks in front of people from other countries. In HALO 
they can come and take off the mask, get involved and 
enjoy their culture just like other nationalities occasionally 
retreat to things that are familiar."

J. he National United Law Enforcement Officers 
Association was created in the mid-1960s to promote 
officer understanding and education in a diverse society. 
In its first full year as an official organization at K-State, 
NULEOA continued its primary mission. 

"Campus police officer Charles Beckom received 
information in the mail about the association," said 
Shawn Gordon, NULEOA president and senior in 
sociology. "There were also announcements made in 
criminal justice classes. Interested students held meet- 
ings where we developed a constitution and planned the 
activities NULEOA should focus on." 

The group offered real-life experience for students 
pursuing a career in law enforcement. 

"One focus of the group is to provide a reality check 
for those in criminal justice, helping them gain experi- 
ence before their internships," Gordon said. "We 
implemented training programs through ROTC and 
also through the campus police." 

The training program was a success, Gordon said. 

"We went rappelling at Milford Lake," he said. "We 
jumped off the dam. It was really beneficial because 
students can say they've had actual training." 

The campus police department played a key role in 
the success of NULEOA's training programs. 

"A reserve program is planned for this summer," 
Beckom said. "I have cautioned the members that 
whatever they do, they must be totally committed. If 
not, their image won't be good." 

In addition to providing job training, NULEOA 
wanted to help find jobs for criminal justice students. 

"We hope to network with other universities and 
acquire space to establish a library for resource material 
with job advertisements because normally agencies 
don't recruit on campuses," Beckom said. 

NULEOA was dedicated to achieving goals estab- 
lished at its founding. Beckom said the group would like 
to have an active role in Ethnic Harmony Week activities 
and invite speakers to benefit the entire campus. 

"A class could be established for officers' education 
in diversity, but if you have students who take an active 
role in events on a regular basis, it sparks interest in others 
and continues the basis for learning," Beckom said.

.Investing their time and energy in outside interests, 
two students used their talents to expand their futures. 

Henry Ashwood, junior in music education, left the 
military to attend K-State. A former Fort Riley military 
band member, Ashwood wanted to continue his hobby 
at the University. 

The members of his military band, Moods, contin- 
ued to play together while he was a student. However, 
the band members soon became involved with other 
activities and bands, and Moods broke up. It was 
through the band's breakup that Ashwood came to 
know the members of his current band, MAS. 

"Dr. (Karen) Martin was working cashier at one 
place we played at," Ashwood said. "I asked her if she 
could sing. (After she sang a song), I could hear she had 
a lot of talent." 

Ashwood asked Martin, director of minority engi- 
neering programs, to sit in with the group for fun that 
night, and soon after she began performing with him. 
Fred Shepherd, a keyboard player for Ebony Theatre 
and Junction City resident, also began practicing with 
Martin. Eventually, the three of them joined and 
formed MAS (Martin, Ashwood and Shepherd). 

Because he often booked performances without 
knowing the other members' schedules, Ashwood said 
he didn't give the group's official name but used Henry 
Ashwood and Friends. 

Because of his interest in jazz music, Ashwood 
became involved with New Currents, a new age, jazz 
and fusion music club. 

"I heard some advertisement on the radio," he said. 
"I thought it would be a good idea (to join) since I was 
a jazz musician playing jazz." 

Ashwood's involvement in the group proved to be 
beneficial when club members helped sponsor his 

"It (New Currents) was really helpful in spreading 
publicity for me and my group," he said. 

The group served as a source of music information 
for its members and aided in Manhattan's growth ofjazz 

"New Currents is a good avenue for all musicians in 

the area, " Ashwood said. "The Manhattanjazz scene

found by attending the events. Behind 
him he displayed the ribbon shirts, all of 
which he and his partner made by hand. 
Hall created over 30 designs, which he 
used to make t-shirts, sweats, hats and

Ashwood was interested in making a career out of 
jazz music. 

"I'm in the process of writing and trying to record. 
My intentions are to one day get a contract playing and 
performing," he said. "I'm into the music. Anywhere I 
can play, I do. I try to promote myself." 

Also wanting to build a career on his experience was 
Chris Hall, senior in veterinary medicine. 

Hall, whose background included a combination of 
several tribes such as Bannock and Muskogee, said he 
enjoyed attending American Indian activities including 
the Native American Student Body meetings and na- 
tional Indian powwows. 

"It gets expensive to go to all the powwows," Hall 
said. "I started just going on the weekends. Eventually, 
I started traveling all summer." 

Hall began funding his traveling expenses by produc- 
ing his own American Indian merchandise. He designed 
barrettes, T-shirts, caps, jewelry and artwork to sell at the 
powwows, and his business earned him $60,000 last 

Hall said he enjoyed the fellowship he found at the 
powwows and NASB meetings. Hall said he planned to 
continue designing Indian crafts and wanted to incorpo- 
rate his cultural customs and medicine into his career as 
a veterinarian. 

"I'll probably end up going back to the reservation," 
he said. "The stem of medicine in this country comes 
from Indian medicine."

Ldvertised as an opportunity to learn about interest- 
ing people and places, the International Club drew 
equal participation from international and American 

Georgios Filiopoulos, International Club president 
and senior in journalism and mass communications, 
heard of the club shortly after transferring from the 
American College in Greece. 

"When I came here as a new student and didn't know 
anyone, the club helped me meet new people and get to 
know friends around the campus," Filiopoulos said. 

by Claudette Riley 

As president, he tried to recruit members who 
wanted to understand the cultural traits and experiences 
of growing up in other countries. 

"The International Club is not a national club. It is 
open to everyone. Our group is not based on the 
experiences of one ethnic group, and that is why we 
have American students as well. We try to emphasize 
that," Filiopoulos said. "The added benefit of the club 
is gaining friends from all over the world." 

That was exactly why Victoria Goebel, freshman in

journalism and mass communications joined the club. 

International students in the club had the opportu- 
nity to learn more about American culture and norms. 

"It is very important that our club isn't connected by 
a single, common, ethnic club like those for Arab or 
Bangladesh students," Filiopoulos said. "We foster an 
atmosphere of exchange between international and 
American students so we can all learn more about each 

He said weekly discussions, meetings and activities 
generated friendships and a deeper understanding of 

"I think we attract people who want to meet people 
from different places and share what they know," said 
Hussein Atie, International Club vice president and 
senior in civil engineering. 

An international table took place twice a month at 
Aggieville restaurants. Each time a different member of 
the group led a discussion about their country and then 
answered questions. Atie gave the first international 
table discussion of the fall semester. 

"I talked about Lebanon," Atie said. "In Lebanon we 
pay for everything on dates. That was one of the first 
things (differences) I noticed when I came to America." 

Besides sharing interests and discussing cultural dif- 
ferences, the members participated in monthly group 
activities including bowling and dinners that allowed 
them to share ethnic foods. The club sponsored a 
holiday dinner for 30 international students Dec. 4. 

"We sponsored a dinner in December in honor of 
EdwardJ. King, who donated the International Student 
Center," Filiopoulos said. 

"I spent a semester in Scotland," Goebel said. "I 
wanted to be with a group whose members have seen 
the world and understand more than just what is going 
on in Kansas."

J. he K-State Student Speech, Language and Hearing 
Association members devoted their time to educating 
students and helping the community. 

KSSSLHA was an informative organization that 
provided tours of rehabilitation facilities and guest 
speakers, as well as providing community services. One 
community service program included donating toddler 
books to the Flint Hills Job Corps Daycare Center. 

"They (the daycare) didn't have any heavy-duty 
books that kids could play with without ruining," said 
Trish Rogenmoser, president and 
senior in speech pathology and au- 
diology. "I proposed that we buy 
them some books at a meeting, and 
it passed. I took about $50 out of our 
dues to get the books and then took 
them over there." 

Rogenmoser said she joined the 
club through unusual circumstances. 
"It was weird how I got in- 
volved," Rogenmoser said. "They 
(University officials) had proposed 
to get rid of the speech pathology 
and audiology program in fall 1992. 
I was encouraged to get involved, 
partly to keep the club going and for 
my personal fulfillment." 

Members didn't have to be speech 
pathology and audiology majors. 
Rogenmoser said membership in- 
volved a $7 yearly due, which went 
toward party preparations. 

The organization was affiliated 
with the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing 

' 'There are three levels of the organization — K-State's 
organization, a Kansas organization and a national organi- 
zation of speech and hearing students," Rogenmoser said. 
"One of our previous graduate students, Tina Mertz, is 
president of the national organization." 

The club had a graduation luncheon for its members 
in December, and Rogenmoser said it was successful. 
"It was a great time that everyone enjoyed," 
Rogenmoser said. "We don't have as many parties as 
we'd like, but we do find it nice to contribute to the 
community and help our members any way we can."

speech pathaology and audiology pro- 
gram was slated for elimination in 1 992. 
"I was encouraged to get involved, partly

tudents with a background in the Mennonite faith 
found fellowship and guidance in the Mennonite Stu- 
dent Group. 

"The group encourages people to be active within 
the church and within church activities," said Sandra 
Goering, senior in agricultural economics. "It particu- 
larly benefits students with a background in the Men- 
nonite faith in giving them a place where they can 
continue to explore it." 

Mark Hiebert, third-year veterinary student, said the 
group members were able to share religious views. 

"What we try to do is give students with a Menno- 
nite background a group of people who are from the 
same background," he said. "It gives students a chance 
to get a perspective on certain issues they may not get 
sitting in a lecture." 

The group, which had 1 5 to 20 active members, met 
every two weeks. Goering said many of the activities 
were social gatherings for the members to become 
better acquainted. Once or twice a semester, they had 
a meeting focusing on bible studies or on a topic related 
to the church or the Christian faith, she said. 

The group did many activities with the Manhattan 
Mennonite Church including performing a skit for 

"It's really hard to define exactly what is specifically 
student-group activities and what is other church activi- 
ties," she said. "With the really active members, it tends 
to get kind of intertwined. They're usually active in 
other parts of the church." 

Members also participated in service projects includ- 
ing raking leaves for local elderly residents. They also 
took high school students to Wichita to build houses, 
Goering said. At the end of the year, the club had a 
clothing drive on campus and donated the collected 
items to local organizations. 

Members had a bake sale and served a Dutch Supper 
at the German Mennonite Food and International Craft 
Sale held in the fall. Members had a bake sale and served 
a Dutch supper. As part of the craft fair, people were 
taught how to make crafts so they would have a usable 

Goering said the group provided a fun way to meet 
Mennonite students in a relaxed atmosphere. 

"It's a really neat group. It struggles at times now 
because students are so busy," she said. "It's not a highly 
demanding group. The time commitment is based on 
the person."

omen's lacrosse was the newest team to join the 
list of University club sports. 

Mary Wuertz, freshman in architectural engineer- 
ing, served as the club's president. 

"Twenty-seven women signed up to start in the 
spring," Wuertz said. "A lot of it was word of mouth. 
However, we did set up tables at the activities fair and 
outside the Union to recruit people." 

Student Governing Association didn't provide fund- 
ing for the team, so members participated in fundraisers. 

"We helped set up chairs for the KU football game," 
said Heather Hamilton, sophomore in biology. "We've 
painted and done other odd jobs." 

The team didn't have tryouts or cuts because it was 
a club sport. Wuertz said the members learned to play 
the game at practices.

"We've done some throwing around," she said. 
"We're getting the fundamentals down." 

Because the team was in the beginning stages, 
members of a Nebraska team coached them on the 
basics, Hamilton said. 

"No one from Kansas State had ever played before, so 
some women from Nebraska came down to help out and 
show us the basic fundamentals to get us going," she said. 

Amy Mott, senior in interior architecture, said she 
became interested in playing the sport after being 
manager for the men's lacrosse team for two years. 

"I like that it's challenging and unique and not many 
people do it," Mott said.

(Continued from page 195) 
women's game was played differently. 

"Women's rules are different than men's," Mott 
said. "The only thing that is the same is the stick, ball and 
the goal." 

One main difference was that women lacrosse play- 
ers had less contact than men players, Hamilton said. 

"With men, they have full pads and can hit each 
other a lot more," she said. "We don't have pads, and 
the rules are stricter." 

The lacrosse season started at the end of February. 
Games were played in the spring, and tournaments took 
place in the fall. 

"The majority of playing is done in the spring," Mott 

However, Hamilton said more games would prob- 
ably be added in the fall. 

"We just got started, so we will probably play as 
much in the fall as in the spring." 

Despite the increasing number of matches for the 
women's team, there were few teams for them to 
compete against. 

"There are not many teams to play in the area," 
Wuertz said. "We'll play KU, Nebraska and some 
Colorado teams."

Students and faculty take part in the second annual Cats for Cans by 
donating canned goods for the Flint Hills Breadbasket, doing so in the 

spirit of giving 


he spirit of giving expressed the can-do attitude of 
student leaders. 

The second annual Cats for Cans challenged K-State 
students and faculty to end hunger in the Manhattan 
area by donating non-perishable items. 

From Oct. 15 to Nov. 15, students united in Cats for 
Cans to collect several thousand canned goods. The 
project's theme was the 30 Days of Thanksgiving, 

Greek organizations, residence halls, honorary soci- 
eties and other student groups joined forces with the 
Cats for Cans committee. Ruth Ann Wefald served as 
the administration's representative to the group and said 
it was important for students to help others. 

"The project is important because there is a critical 
need for additional food for people living on the margin 
in Manhattan," Wefald said. "It is wonderful for stu- 
dents to show the spirit of giving by helping others." 

Shirley Bramhall, executive director of the Flint 
Hills Breadbasket, said non-perishable canned goods 
were included in holiday baskets distributed by the Flint 
Hills Breadbasket or given to 48 recipient agencies. 

"This project helps feed the hungry and helps those 
who cannot feed themselves," she said. "The effort of 
the students shows their visible support and shows our 
students are valuable to us in more ways than one." 

Bramhall said students' efforts had a positive effect on 
the community, especially since the 1 992 census showed 
Riley County had a national poverty level of 21.2 
percent. The K-State community collected 48,500 
pounds and raised more than $3,700. 

"From Jan. 1 through June 30, we donated to 2,933 
families this past year compared to 2,343 families during 
(that same period in) 1992," Bramhall said. 

The biggest collection of canned goods occurred at 
the Oct. 30 Homecoming football game against Uni- 
versity of Oklahoma. Student Governing Association 
members collected cans for two hours before the game. 

Michelle Eble, co-chairwoman of the event and 
senior in architectural engineering, said student in- 
volvement in Cats for Cans was imperative for the 
project's success.

"I think the students have a bad reputation in the 
community because they still think we're kids," Eble 
said. "Since we're doing something that benefits the 
community, it puts the students in a better light." 

Community members saw architectural engineer- 
ing students' efforts Oct. 23-31 at Manhattan Town 
Center. The students built a large replica of KSU 
Stadium, the Dev Nelson Press Box and Vanier Football 
Complex out of cans. After contributing $1 or one can, 
donors were allowed to guess the number of cans used 
in the construction. 

The K-State Union Bookstore also supported the 
canned food drive, said Lori Davis, senior in human 
ecology and mass communication. From Nov. 1-15, 
the bookstore gave a 20-percent discount for each 
canned food donation. 

In addition, the College of Education ambassadors 
joined the spirited competition with a pie contest 
suggested by Dean Michael Holen. For each can 
donated, students voted on 20 faculty members or 15 
student leaders to be in the contest. 

"Our ambassadors thought it was a good idea to get 
faculty involved with students," said Travis Rink, 
senior in secondary education. "We started off slow. 
The students were ahead, and we were afraid the faculty 
wouldn't take part, but the faculty wouldn't be de- 
graded. They donated more than 400 cans the last four 
hours of the competition." 

Rink, who had a pie thrown in his face, said the pies 
offered an incentive for people to make donations. The 
college had a total collection of 915 canned goods. 

"It was great that we collected that many cans from 
our college," Rink said. "The support from the faculty 
and students was tremendous and expressed our con- 
cern for the community." 

Wefald said she was impressed with student leaders' 
work in the project. 

"It (the project) is absolutely terrific with student-led 
effort," Wefald said. "It reaffirms my love and faith for 
K-State. We have something special on our campus, 
which is the wonderful spirit of caring."

/othing pleased Shirley Marshall more than seeing 
new faces at her door. For Marshall, director of New 
Directions, each new face meant another person was 
looking for a second chance in life. 

Located on the second floor of the Foundation 
Center, the New Directions office was referred to 
hundreds of people each year. Aimed toward helping 
single or newly divorced women and mothers, New 
Directions also assisted anyone interested in upgrading 
or gaining new work skills. 

"The people who come to us know they need to 
make a change in their lives or careers," Marshall said. 
"We show them options and opportunities and refer 
them to the right places." 

New Directions worked with a graduating senior 
last April who was dealing with fears about interviewing 
for her first job. 

"I had a K-State senior come in before graduation 
with very low self-esteem. She was shy about the 
prospect of interviewing for jobs," Marshall said. "I 
connected her with a group at Lafene and set up mock 
interviews and did role playing with her. That way we 
could give her feedback and reassurance." 

The office referred three times as many people to other 
agencies. Ninety-five percent of the clients were women. 

"We do what no one else in the community does. 
We give undivided one-on-one attention and spend 
time developing their confidence and skills," she said. 
"We focus on them and we are there to listen." 

Jane Anderson (not her real name), Manhattan resi- 
dent, found herself starting her life over two years ago. 

"I was married to a Fort Riley soldier. I didn't think 
about what I was going to do if it (the marriage) ended. 
I didn't think it would," Anderson said. "I'm not from 
Manhattan, and suddenly I was looking for a house and 
work and caring for two young boys alone." 

Anderson found a new beginning at New Direc- 
tions. She heard about the program through her oldest 
son's Headstart teacher. 

"His teacher told me about New Directions, and I 
needed direction in my life. At first it was hard for me 
to ask for help," she said. "After two weeks, I called. We 
set up a time and talked." 

After using a book about improving typing skills and 
taking a class about general computer skills, Anderson 
applied for a job. 

"Marshall showed me how to write a resume and 
what to do when going on an interview," she said. "I 
was hired for the second job I applied for. The skills 
New Directions taught me helped get my foot in the

to join during their first band season and had to maintain 
a 2.0 GPA to remain in the honorary. 

Kappa Kappa Psi also assisted with the daily functions 
of the marching band. 

"During marching band season, we are really busy. 
We get everyone fitted for their uniforms, pass them 
(the uniforms) out before and collect them after games," 
said Alex Shultz, senior in electrical engineering. 

Lehman said friends invited him to join the honor- 
ary, which led to his involvement in the organization. 

"Being a member takes quite a bit of time, with 
meetings, services and social gatherings, but it's well- 
spent time and definitely worthwhile," Lehman said. 

Activities included planning dances, building per- 
cussion boxes and props for football game halftime 
performances and promoting college bands. 

Stan Fink, Kappa Kappa Psi co-sponsor and former 
band director, said members were continually recruited. 

"We're always looking for interested members," 
Fink said. "It is looked upon as an honor to be asked (to 
join). We're equally open to all band members." 

Shultz said the group helped him gain self-confidence. 

"The people in Kappa Kappa Psi are outstanding band 
members and leaders," he said. "Most of my best friends 
are in the club, and it has prepared me and made me more 
comfortable in applying for leadership positions."

court wars 

by Claudette Riley 


i oud calls and shouted scores between cricket play- 
ers were often heard inside the residence halls surround- 
ing Derby Complex's courts. 

A club composed of international students from 
Pakistan, India and Australia gathered to play cricket 
with an enthusiasm that transferred from their native 

"In my country (Pakistan) and in (other) cricket- 
playing countries, cricketers are more famous than 
movie stars," said Sohail Malik, Cricket Club president 
and senior in electrical engineering. "Everyone plays 
cricket and wants to be a professional cricketer." 

The club had an average of 30 players and met every 
weekend throughout the summer and spring. Practice 
times were determined by the weather. 

"If it's nice out, we play," Malik said. "When I 
arrived here, word-of-mouth spread through our coun- 
trymen, and we joined because we play cricket. It's a 
national game." 

Practice times and club scrimmages were ruled by 
the weather. 

"Our games are delayed or canceled because it rains 
a lot in Manhattan," Malik said. "We did stop playing 
earlier this year because of the cold weather. We don't 
mind some of the weather but not the freezing wind or 

The club occasionally split into country teams and 
played each other. Members said winning cricket was a 
matter of national pride. 

"Pakistan won the World Cup in 1992, so we kind 
offeel like we own the game," said Habib Shaikh, senior 
in business administration. "We've watched kids play- 
ing on the streets and in the parks at 5 and 6 years of age 
or watched professionals on television play the game." 

The scrimmage teams changed regularly, but the 
cricket club had a chance to test themselves in a 
collegiate battle against KU.

a good match," Malik said. "They have regular practice 
times and a practice field. We have to make due." 

Scoring was similar to baseball. The regulation bat 
was shorter and fatter, and the ball was made from hard 
leather that made body pads necessary. A full playing 
field consisted of 1 1 bailers and fielders and two referees. 

"Modern-day baseball was shaped from cricket," 
Malik said. "However, there is an unlimited amount of 
runs a team can score, and the team who scores the most 
runs, wins." 

A 70- to 120-foot radius was marked on the field. If 
the ball rolled over the field's perimeter, the batter 
scored four runs. If the ball flew over, they scored six. 

Each bailer was limited to six balls, and once every 
bailer on a team threw all their balls, it was the end of an 
over, which was like an inning. A game usually con- 
sisted of 50 overs and usually lasted six to eight hours. 

Improvisation was a necessity for the club, members said. 

"The University has not given us the grounds, so we 
play in Derby's courts," said Bilal Mahmud, the club's 
vice president and senior in electrical engineering. 

The members played with a tennis ball because they 
couldn't afford the padding required for regulation play. 

"We would like to have a facility of our own," Malik 
said. "Some schools at least provide the balls and pads." 

Cricket, commonly considered a gentleman's game, 
became more heavily competitive as the members 
continued playing throughout the fall semester. 

"It is a very challenging game. It's a big deal if you go for 
it and win," Malik said. "It's very popular and interesting." 

Asad Ullah, graduate student in geography, said he 
viewed every opportunity to play cricket as a way to 
sharpen his skills. 

"You have to think a lot about how to get the next 
person out and decide strategies," Ullah said. "I love

Upsilon promoted interest in studying 

the world 


Teography was often thought of as naming states 
and capitals, but Gamma Theta Upsilon tried to prove 
the discipline wasn't just rudimentary. 

The group sponsored speakers from outside the depart- 
ment, including Tom Coleman from Alabama A&M 
University who lectured on remote sensing. 

"Remote sensing is the use of satellite imagery or aerial 
photography to monitor environmental systems," said 
David Howard, club president and graduate student in 
geography. "A lot of speakers try to hit on current 
environmental problems." 

GTU members attended the Great Plains/Rocky 
Mountain regional meeting of the Association of Ameri- 
can Geographers in September in Boulder, Colo. 

Barbara Gibson, GTU vice president and graduate 
student in geography, said the meeting provided an 
opportunity for members to make contacts.

"It's exposure to meeting your peers and people you 
study under," Gibson said. "There are several different 
aspects you can go to, whether it be the human or physical 
side of geography." 

Geography Awareness Week generated increasedaware- 
ness about the study of geography, Howard said. 

"Geography had fallen out of the (class) curriculum in 
many areas," Howard said. "The purpose of GTU is to 
further interest in geography." 

GTU's annual fall banquet was during awareness week, 
and new members were initiated. 

Beginning Feb. 11, the group gathered on Fridays for 
brown bag lunches. Professors and students shared travel slides 
of interesting places. 

Howard said activities were open to the public. 

"The club is designed to bring geography to everybody, 
even if you're not in a (geography) class," he said.

212 £ student senate 

Vl/ith the future o/K-State students 
in their hands, Student Senate made 
decisions in others' 

best interest 

by Sheila McEwen 

Otudent Senate faced an agenda full of restructuring, 
reallocating and revising. 

The student governing body, whose legislative year 
began in April, had 41 of its 60 senators elected to their 
first year. Because of the high turnover rate, it took 
members awhile to learn parliamentary procedures. 

"It's always rough in the beginning, but overall it has 
been good," said Sarah Caldwell, College of Arts and 
Sciences senator and senior in English. 

She said the amount of newly elected members did 
have advantages. 

"The number of new ideas has increased," Caldwell 
said. "The new people are untainted by past efforts and 
the politics of Senate." 

Senate passed several issues and laid the groundwork 
for more to come. One controversial topic senators 
faced was the plus/minus system. 

The system, which originally passed Faculty Senate 
40-29, would have changed the University grading 
system. The new system would have enabled professors 
to give pluses and minuses to students beginning fall 1 994. 

Problems arose when senators questioned how stricdy 
the system would be enforced by instructors. 

"Not all teachers go for it," said DeLoss Jahnke, 
Senate chair and senior in agricultural journalism. 

The majority of senators opposed the system, and 
Caldwell said they rallied around the issue. 

"The plus/minus system really geared everyone 
up," Caldwell said. "It got everyone excited about 
changing something." 

Although Senate did not vote on the issue, they were 
instrumental in gaining student support against it by 
circulating petitions. More than 4,000 student signa- 
tures were obtained to prove the large amount of 
opposition among the student body. 

"The students saw the petitions as an avenue to get 
involved," said Trent LeDoux, Senate intern coordina- 
tor and sophomore in animal sciences and industry. 
"The plus/minus system is a big deal. We (senators) 
have stood up for this as a group." 

Faculty Senate later repealed its vote to implement 
the system based on the student oppostition. 

Senators also focused on restructuring the Finance

senate meetings, 
which began at 7

about 10:30 or 11

times they had

Committee into two separate committees. Jahnke, 
Finance Committee chair, said it was an important 
change to make. 

"Now one committee doesn't have to tackle all the 
financial problems," he said. 

In the past, the Finance Committee dealt with every 
aspect of money from allocations to line fees. 

"We (Finance Committee members) handle every 
allocation of every penny," Caldwell said. 

The restructuring will take place after the spring 
election and will consist of two groups. One group will 
deal with allocations from Student Governing Associa- 
tion, and the other will only handle line-item fees. 

Another issue on their agenda was restructuring the 
fine arts fee, a fee every student paid. 

"Restructuring of the fine arts fee could have a major 
impact on certain colleges," Jahnke said. "Departments 
in the colleges will be affected, such as Ebony Theatre 
in the College of Arts and Sciences." 

The Fine Arts Committee had the responsibility of 
allocating funds to different fine art groups on campus. 

"The Fine Arts Committee is trying to make line- 
item allocation more efficient on what money goes 
where," Jahnke said. "It will give Senate a little more 
authority over how the fine-item money is allocated." 

Senate also planned to outline the responsibilities of 
the newly created student body vice president. Eric 
Henry, former graduate student, had the position until he 
resigned in December because of personal reasons. David 
Frese, deputy vice president andjunior in journalism and 
mass communications, was appointed to the position. 

The issues kept senators busy, and Jahnke said the 
new senators were doing a good job. 

"We got off to a slow start with as many new people 
as we had," Jahnke said. "Now people are really 
analyzing things. The senators and interns are taking 
their jobs seriously."

(Xn interest in agriculture and a love of 
animals meant helping charities and 
living the rodeo life for ropers and 

bull riders 

by Taumya Ernst 

J. he mere name Rodeo Club brought forth images 
of Stetsons, Wranglers and boots, and, as Garth 
Brooks sang, "the bulls and the blood, the broncs and 
the mud." 

But members of the club were not necessarily 
members of the rodeo team, said Travis GrifEn, club 
president and senior in agribusiness. 

"The Rodeo Club is for team members and any- 
body who wants to learn about it. We have the Rodeo 
Club and the team. They're separate but kind of 
intermingled," GrifEn said. "While not all of the club 
members are team members, quite a few of those on the 
team are in the club." 

Janet Bailey, senior in animal sciences and industry, 
said the club was a support mechanism for the team. 

"It takes a lot of hard work and money to rodeo," 
Bailey said. "The club stands behind the team." 

The Rodeo Club was involved in 1 rodeos through- 
out the year including a fall alumni rodeo and a spring 
rodeo that both took place at K-State.

"We put on two rodeos a year at K-State," Bailey 
said. "We do everything from advertising to contracting 
stock in preparing for the rodeo." 

GrifEn said the club had changed over the last few 
years. More members joined who were from colleges 
other than the College of Agriculture. The popularity 
of rodeos was on the rise, he said. 

"Rodeo has kind of followed the same path as the 
increased popularity of country music," Griffin said. "It 
used to be the members were always in an ag-related 
field, but we're starting to bring in people from every 
kind of background." 

Interest from students outside the agricultural field 
was not the only change in the club. Rodeo as a sport 
and a profession was more widely accepted, partially 
because of the team members themselves, said Steve 
Frasier, coach. 

He said current rodeo members knew more about 

rodeo competitions than those in the past. 

"Kids are more knowledgeable about the sport of 
rodeo. High school associations are able to better adapt 
our athletes to the sport of rodeo," Frasier said. "Rodeo 
has become a profession. It's notjust the kid coming into 
town on a Saturday night to rodeo and have a little fun." 

Although rodeos were serious events, they were still 
fun, said Natalie Palmer, women's team captain and 
senior in business administration. 

"It's really challenging and a lot of fun. There's a lot 
of hard work involved," Palmer said. "Rodeo's a sport 
that becomes a way oflife. Youjust never want to quit." 

Palmer competed in barrel racing, goat tying and 
breakaway roping, the events women club members 
were allowed to compete in. 

The men, on the other hand, were involved in 
roping, calf roping, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, 
bull riding and bulldogging.

As with other intercollegiate sports, if the athletes didn't 
maintain a 2.0 GPA, they couldn't stay on the team, Bailey 

"It's a big challenge to balance activities and academics, 
but we draw some pretty high-caliber students," Bailey 

The club helped the team travel to rodeos during the 
year by sponsoring various fundraisers. They sought dona- 
tions from Manhattan businesses for a benefit auction in 
December. Following the auction, the club sponsored a 
pig roast and a dance at Kickers Bar & Grill. 

In February, the club brought the nationally known 
cowboy poet, Baxter Black, to campus. Bailey said the 
event was billed as a scholarship fundraiser. 

"We're looking into establishing an endowment," 
Bailey said. "We're looking for the longevity of the rodeo 
program at K-State." 

The club received the profit from the performance as 
well as a 10 to 20 percent gratuity from Black's books and 
tapes that were sold during his stop at K-State, Bailey said. 

Club members also planned a special opportunity for 
handicapped children to see a rodeo when team members 
competed at K-State. 

"We help with a lot of handicapped kids," Griffin said. 
"Big Lakes here in Manhattan and Cappers in Topeka are 
involved. We invite all these kids the night before our 
actual rodeo for the practice. They get to see everything 
that will be in the actual rodeo but up close and more 
personal. They get a chance to talk to team members and 
see the animals." 

The club members also developed an educational 
program for rodeo fans. 

"Rodeo is very much a spectator sport, but we also want 
to inform the audience," Bailey said. 

The program taught spectators about the care of stock, 
production agriculture and how a rodeo was put on, Bailey 

Interaction with the community and within the club 
itself was what mattered most to club members, Palmer said. 

"In the club, you're making friends with people you'll 
keep in touch with your whole life," she said.

>ay goodbye to the Classy Cats. 

The dance team was officially dismissed from the K- 
State Marching Band and removed from the Depart- 
ment of Music after squad members failed to attend a 
band concert in which they were not participating. 

Marching Band, an academic course, included all 
instrumentalists, flag team members, twirlers and the 
Classy Cats. It was stated in the policies and procedures 
section of the Marching Band Handbook that "One 
unexcused performance absence warrants a failing grade 
and possible dismissal from the 'Pride' at the director's 

Failing the course concerned group members. 

"When our grades were in question, that's when our 
parents really got involved," said Jeanette Johnson, 
Classy Cats captain and senior in psychology. "We 
heard he was going to flunk two girls on the team." 

Johnson said the ordeal was emotional for the squad. 

"As a senior and the oldest one on the team, it hurt 
me to see the younger girls get so upset. I've had my

ones are just getting started," Johnson said. "I wanted a 
good squad this year, and that's what I got. It just hurts 
to see everyone so upset." 

Johnson said Frank Tracz, director of bands and 
associate professor of music, had a negative opinion of 
the Classy Cats. She said she took the whole situation 

"We tried to compromise and work with the band 
director until we couldn't take it anymore," Johnson said. 

Tracz said he had no personal problems with anyone, 
and that he dismissed the team because they went against 
band policy. 

"I will excuse anyone from a performance if they 
have a valid reason," he said. "It's not a problem, and we 
work around (that policy) a lot." 

Tracz said his policy was that a performance was a

performance and was not optional. Tracz was instructor 
of the Marching Band course, and his policy affected all 
the students. 

Although Tracz was not the Classy Cats' coach, he 
was responsible for the group as a whole. He said 
dismissing the squad was following policy. 

"It (dismissing students) is all part of myjob," he said. 
"I've had to dismiss several instrumentalists this year for 
missing one performance." 

In place of the Classy Cats, Tracz planned on forming 
a new drill team to accompany the band. He wanted to 
hire a coach and dance instructor to assist the group. 

The Classy Cats continued to perform throughout 
the basketball season, but they were no longer associated 
with the band. 

"During basketball season, we don't receive credit 
for performing, so it won't affect us to no longer be with 
the band," Johnson said. "We perform all our halftime 
performances to taped music." 

The team planned to attend a national dance team 
competition in Minneapolis, Minn., March 10-12. 
Johnson said the band had money that was to be used for 
the Classy Cats, but they never received it. 

"We didn't even know there was money that was 
supposed to be ours," she said. "Student Governing 
Association is helping us out by giving us a little money." 

The team also funded the trip by sponsoring car 
washes and perfonning at local events. 

Despite the anger and hurt feelings the ordeal caused, 
Johnson said the year went well. 

"We got through it and had a good year regardless," 
she said.

y aiding local troops, Campus Girl 
Scouts prove they are more than just 



by Sheila McEwen 

/ampus Girl Scouts offered leadership opportunities, 
fun activities and community service all rolled into one. 

CGS was an extension of the Girl Scout Program, 
which gave men and women the opportunity to 
continue Girl Scout activities throughout college. 

"It's open to women and men. We do not discrimi- 
nate racially or religiously," said Linda Harvey, vice 
president of CGS andjunior in human ecology and mass 

Because there were only 10 members, increasing 
club membership was the group's main concern. 

"Not too many people know about us. We're trying 
to let people know there are Campus Girl Scouts," 
Harvey said. "We're really trying to push membership. 
We use advertisements and put fliers up around campus." 

They tried boosting membership by sponsoring 
Scout Out, a program where CGS invited cadet and 
high-school senior women to the University to give 
them a taste of college life. 

"The girls come to K-State, and we have a tour or 
scavenger hunt of the campus to help them get ac- 
quainted," Harvey said. "We open it up to all Kansas 
scouts so we can get them all together." 

CGS also provided community service to local 
troops and area groups. One project they participated in 
was International Fair. Twenty-five troops gathered 
Feb. 12 in the city auditorium to represent countries 
with scouting programs. The troops made posters and 
took each country's traditional food to the event. 

"We represented Madagascar," said Sara Wilken, 
CGS president and senior in hotel and restaurant 
management. "We brought books, made a display and 
brought a Madagascar dessert." 

Harvey said members sometimes received a lot of 
flack about being Girl Scouts. 

"We get a lot of silly comments, but the next 
question out of people's mouths is when do the cookie 
sales start," Harvey said. 

Rachel Hess, CGS treasurer and freshman in nuclear 
engineering, said she enjoyed the group. 

"This is my 13th year in scouting. I joined as a first- 
grader," Hess said. "I enjoy the leadership opportunities 
and camping." 

Members said they gave a lot to the community and 
to the organization and received satisfaction in return. 

"I like the ideals and what it (CGS) stands for," 
Wilken said. "It's all about positive thinking and getting 
out there and doing fun things." 

Harvey said she was dedicated to the organization 
and its purpose. 

"Scouts is something you have in your heart. I'm 
going to make community service my life work," 
Harvey said. "Girl Scouts has opened me up to a lot of

idio programs, gospel services and lectures high- 
lighted daily events promoting Black History Month in 
February. Thirty-seven events were scheduled through 
the Black Student Union and Multicultural Affairs. 

Atallah Shabazz, the eldest of Malcolm X's six 
daughters, delivered a Feb. 16 keynote address for the 
month celebrating "The Gift of Heritage." 

Shabazz, a self-proclaimed daughter of the revolu- 
tion, came to the University to celebrate her father's 
contributions and answer questions about his life. 

"Long before I knew the public image of Malcolm 
X, I knew the daddy at home," she said. 

By holding a conversation with the audience, Shabazz 
sought to motivate and encourage self-confidence. 

"One of the things we must realize is that you are all 
here for a reason, and anytime anyone picks a negative 
adjective to describe you, know that person is suffering 
from an insecurity," she said. 

The value of celebrating oneself was important to 
Shabazz, and she believed that each person had a 
contribution to make. 

"When I was growing up, and they used to ask us in 
school about the 2 1st century, dreaming was non-stop," 
she said. "In six years it will be the 21st century. How 
are we preparing ourselves as parents and friends?" 

Angela Hubler, professor of English, excused her 
Wednesday night class so students could attend the 
lecture and discuss it afterward. 

"The class is studying African American writers, and 
I thought we could learn from her," Hubler said. "The 
talk was motivational and it is important for any political 
program to include building individual self-esteem." 

Jermine Alberty, freshman in secondary education, 
said Shabazz promoted diversity in experiences. 

"I thought she was inspiring," Alberty said. "Her 
father was important, but she is her own person." 

Alberty, president of the KSU Gospel Service, also 
helped organize several gospel services throughout the 
month as well as a Feb. 27 gospel music performance. 

"The legacy of black gospel is important to Ameri- 
can black history. It helped us make it through slavery, 
and the songs kept many going," he said. 

Alberty said he hoped interest in Black history and 
the celebration of culture would continue after February's 
organized events. 

"Learning about each other is a daily thing," he said. 
"We have to open up to others, and those experiences 
will enrich us."

encing Club members' battles weren't confined to 
the piste, the area where duels took place. They also had 
to overcome a delay in their practice schedule and work 
to become an officially recognized sports club. 

Brian Green, club president and freshman in pre- 
health professions, said the summer's flooding of the 
Ogden Community Center, which was the club's 
practice facility, delayed their practices. 

"Because of the flooding, we didn't even get to start 
practicing until October, which is the beginning of the 
season," he said. 

Once they were able to resume practices, members 
faced another problem. They didn't realize they had to 
be a sports club to represent K-State. 

"I first realized we weren't an official K-State sports 
club at registration. I stopped to look at the sports club 
listings and didn't see our name on the fist," he said. "We 
didn't even start representing K-State until the end of 

The Fencing Club followed the same route other 
organizations did in becoming recognized by K-State. 
The group applied to the Student Governing Associa- 
tion and gained its approval to become an official sports 

Green said the fencing group started at Fort Riley 
but began focusing on recruiting membership at K- 
State in the fall semester. 

"We lost most of the people from Fort Riley," he 
said. "We now have more people from K-State, mostly 
due to recruitment through UFM class." 

Because the flooding decreased practice time, the 
club only participated in one tournament, which took 
place in February. 

"We didn't do that well, but we didn't finish last," 
Green said. "We did as well as we could." 

Foil, epee and sabre were the three swords used in 
fencing tournaments. Other equipment included an 
electronic scoring device that kept score at tourna- 

Pants similar to baseball pants were worn as safety 
gear. Additional protection was provided by a thick, 
denim material covering the torso, gloves surrounding 
most of the forearm and a helmet with reinforced wiring 
that was tested before each tournament. 

Green said the club owned equipment and loaned it 
to prospective fencers.

"If you start to fence competitively, you should be 
prepared to pay about $200 (for equipment)," he said. 
"If money is a little tight, people will loan you their 
equipment as long as you understand that if you break 
it, you buy it." 

Green said the team, which consisted of 13 active 
members, didn't have much experience, but he said he 
hoped this would change with time, practice and 
increased membership. 

"We are young, but we are up and coming," he said.

tournament took place, so she decided to compete. 

' ' I had already qualified in the divisional, so I decided 
to take a shot at it," she said. 

At the championships, Juergensmeyer finished 1 14th 
out of 126 in the women's division II. 

"That is really good considering I am an unrated 
fencer," she said. "Someone has to finish first, and 
someone has to finish last. I didn't want to finish last, and 
I didn't. My goal was to finish in the double digits, and 
I almost did it." 

Being an unrated fencer meant there were not 
enough people in Kansas to have a raring system. 

Green encouraged both women and men to partici- 
pate in fencing regardless of their physical stature. 

"We are an equal opportunity stabber," he said. 
"We will take anybody whether they are fat, skinny, tall 
or short and make them a good fencer."

For Habitat for Humanity members, spring break 
meant tools, tape measures and a lot of sweat. 

The campus chapter planned a trip to New Orleans 
to help the city's affiliate chapter build houses for low- 
income families as part of the national Collegiate 
Challenge program. 

Zac Bailey, Collegiate Challenge chairman and 
junior in agricultural engineering, said the group planned 
to take more than 20 students. 

"This is the first year the K-State chapter is going," 
Bailey said. "We are going to New Orleans to work on 
finishing up some houses." 

Members had to finance part of the spring break trip, 
but the campus chapter also helped with expenses. 

"Most of the money will come from personal 
pockets, but we're also receiving help from the Univer- 
sity chapter," Bailey said. "We're planning some 
fundraisers like cleaning Bramlage Coliseum (after 

The campus chapter of Habitat, whose main func- 
tions were to supply money and time to the Manhattan 
affiliate group, also worked in surrounding communi- 

"We can't work on houses in Manhattan yet because 
that affiliate is just getting organized," Bailey said, "so 
most of our work has been in Topeka or Salina." 

Pamelajackson, president of the campus chapter and 
junior in human development and family studies, said 
the work was especially fulfilling when the volunteers 
met the families moving into the homes. 

"The families of those two houses in Salina both 
moved in the same day we were there,"Jackson said. "It 
was nice because we got to meet the people moving in, 
and you could see how appreciative they really were." 

To participate in the projects, Habitat members 
sponsored fundraisers, Jackson said. 

"You can't always volunteer for work projects until 
you've found the money needed for supplies," Jackson 
said. "We try to provide fun things for students to do so 
we can raise money for the local affiliate to get started. 
When they reach $30,000, they can begin working on 
houses in town." 

The members were not required to be trained in 
construction to assist with the work projects, she said. 

"We have a lot of construction science, interior 
design and landscape architecture majors, but there are 
just as many people who have had no formal training," 
Jackson said. "The only real prerequisite is the desire 
and willingness to help others." 

The work included minor construction, but they 
also did interior cleaning and decorating, Jackson said.

"The last time we went to Salina, we took about 12 
students," she said. "We finished two houses by putting up 
blinds and doing some yard work and painting." 

The campus chapter was not responsible for the main 
portion of the finances for Habitat for Humanity or for 
making sure the construction was done in a particular 
manner. Jackson said this was left to the local affiliate, so the 
campus chapter was mainly a supplemental group. 

"The local affiliates have a project coordinator or a 
construction chairperson who makes sure all the construc- 
tion is done properly," she said. "There's plenty for us to 
do, but because of the financial responsibility, the local 
affiliates are in charge of the site selection and actual 

Jackson said the group's main focus for the year was to 
provide volunteer help for the work projects and raise 
money to donate to the local affiliate. One of the 
organization's fundraisers was a pool tournament during 
the fall semester. 

"Bleachers sponsored our pool tournament in Decem- 
ber by donating the space and tables," Jackson said. 
"Anybody in the community could enter the tournament, 
and about half of the participants were not K-State students . 
They were members of the community who were willing 
to help us out." 

The tournament raised about $140 and went directly 
toward the $3,000 needed for Manhattan's Habitat for 
Humanity to become affiliated. 

Dave Goad, co-chairman of the local affiliate's fund- 
raising committee and Manhattan resident, said one of the 
largest donations they received was a $500 contribution 
from the campus chapter, which put them over the $3,000 
minimum mark. 

"The support of the K-State chapter is vital to the 
development of the Manhattan affiliate chapter," Goad 
said. "The contribution was appreciated and was a large 
part of our total collection so far." 

Goad said the campus chapter was an important part of 
the local chapter's success. 

"Student involvement is welcome at any level," he said. 
"Just knowing that students are willing to support our 
chapter is very motivating to us."

T/rojects and displays help the American Society of Mechanical Engineers gear 

weekend toward children during the All-University 




stween hydraulic-based floats and a wind tunnel, 
members of the American Society of Mechanical Engi- 
neers had their work cut out for them during the All- 
University Open House. 

The April 8-10 event had three purposes for the group, 
said Amy Rathgeber, Open House co-chairman and 
senior in mechanical engineering. ASME wanted to 
promote understanding about the field for current students' 
parents, recruit prospective students and provide an oppor- 
tunity for engineering companies to look at graduate 
students' research. 

ASME members began organizing the event in August 
and planned their displays and projects. 

"A lot of parents don't really understand what their sons 
and daughters are doing," Rathgeber said. "At Open 
House, we wanted it to be family oriented so everyone 
could get something out of it." 

Open House became more important to the group 
throughout the years, said Troy Hagstrum, ASME presi- 
dent and senior in mechanical engineering. 

by Alie Bresadola 

"It has been quite successful," he said. "Open House is 
a really big recruitment process for us." 

ASME members sponsored a Wildcats of Weird Sci- 
ence display geared toward children. The display allowed 
children to play with engines. 

"We wanted them to see that mechanical engineering 
isn't greasy tools," Rathgeber said. 

Another event was the wind tunnel. Freshmen worked 
with seniors and graduate students to explore areas includ- 
ing aerodynamics and lift/drag capabilities. 

Composites and projects showed application skills and 
applied what students had learned to the real world. 

"It's a good way to show the company the research our 
graduate students have done, which is what the companies 
look at," Rathgeber said. 

She said the time the members spent preparing for and 
participating in Open House was worth it. 

"Open House takes a lot of planning, but it's great 
because it gets you involved, builds your leadership skills, 
and it's great to get to know the professors better," she said.

New athletic director Max Urick believes in

he said he was here to stay. 
. Max Urick, the University's new athletic director, came to campus 
in June 1993 and discovered a place he didn't want to leave. 

"I've found a place to hang my coat," Urick said. "This is just a good 
place to be. I feel comfortable in this environment. The values of honesty, 
integrity and concern for fellow man are important to me and can be found 
here at K-State." 

Unck brought to his job years of experience in collegiate sports. 

"I've been in college sports 30 years," Urick said. "I worked at small 
colleges, large colleges and private institutions." 

He left his athletic director position at Iowa State after falling out of favor 
with the university's president. 

"I saw this (job) as an opportunity," Urick said. "The timing was good." 

Urick said his athletic director's position was a management job, with 
communication as his most important managing tool. He said communi- 
cation among departments was lacking before he joined the staff. 

"The department had a definite lack of leadership," Urick said. "They 
(department officials) made no attempt to understand how the (athletic) 
department's work relates to other departments or the campus as a whole." 

He wanted to improve the communication level in order to help all the 
sports programs. 

"We're trying to get all sports programs coordinated," he 
said. "Communication is a must. It's (my job) a function of making sure 
people are operating their units within a frame of limits." 

Looking at the future with optimism, Unck said others needed to share 
his positive view. 

"This is truly a new era at Kansas State. I view us as a bright shining star 
in the horizon," Urick said. "I see us with good leadership and community 
spirit. Carrying a program to a higher level takes people believing." 

He said students and alumni needed to support sports programs. 

"This is a unique time in K-State history," Urick said. "This is our 
opportunity to think bigger than we have in the past. We need to believe 
we are worthy of the recognition we are receiving." 

"This is truly a new era at Kansas State. 
I view us as a bright shining star in the 
horizon. I see us with good leadership 
and community spirit. Carrying a pro- 
gram to a higher level takes people believ-

ith an inexperienced team and one of the toughest schedules in the 
nation, the baseball team ended their season 15-34. 

"Unfortunately, we didn't do real well with our schedule. It was my first 
losing season in 17 years of coaching," said head coach Mike Clark. "I 
learned a lot about myself, along with the players learning a lot about 

The team's schedule included several games against teams ranked in the 
nation's Top 20. Clark said the team played seven confer- 
ence champions from Division I . He also said their schedule 
was ranked one of the 10 toughest in the nation. 

Despite the challenging schedule, the season had several 
highlights that included wins over KU and Clemson. 

"Clemson was the best game we played all season. 

Everybody did what they were supposed to do, and 

everybody did what they were capable of doing," said 

senior pitcher Brett Bock, who ended his season with the 

record for the most saves in a career. 

Other records players set included most putouts by freshman outfielder 

Dave Hendrix at Iowa State with 20 and most assists by sophomore shortstop 

Kevin McMullin who had nine at Missouri. Senior second baseman Jay 

Kopriva tied the school record for most triples with two at Oklahoma. 

Six players were named to the Academic all Big Eight team. Senior 
center outfielder Brian Culp, senior shortstop Todd Petering and freshman 
outfielder Chris Hess were named to the Phillips 66 Academic all Big Eight's 
first team. Honor roll members included sophomore infielder Kirk Franz, 
sophomore pitcher Pat Ralston and freshman pitcher Kevin Wicker. 

Senior outfielder Chris Wolf and Petering were both named Big Eight 
Player of the Week during the season. Wolf won the honor batting 8 for 
13 (.651) at Wichita State and Oklahoma. He also recorded six PvBIs, four 
runs scored, two doubles and five walks in four games.

Petering was selected for the honor after batting .364 against Wichita 
State, Oklahoma State and Nebraska. He had an .808 slugging percentage 
with three home runs, three doubles, four stolen bases, 10 runs scored and 
eight RBIs. 

Wolf also brought a nine-game hitting streak to Oklahoma City where 
he went 17 for 34 (.500) with nine RBIs, five runs scored, four doubles and 
seven walks. He hit .364 during Big Eight play and ended his season with 
a .280 batting average. 

Another player that had a great year was Culp, who hit .390 (30 for 77) 
in his last 22 games with five doubles, seven home runs, 30 RBIs, 22 runs 
scored and five stolen bases. 

Although many players had record-setting seasons, the team couldn't 
put their skills together as a unit. 

"It's hard to throw a team together in half a year's time. You only have 
half a year to get used to each other's tendencies," Bock said. "I think if we 
had the same team next season, we would be pretty good given the 
experience of playing together." 

Clark said the team also suffered because an injured pitcher had to sit out 
the entire season. 

"The key injury that hurt us this season, but will help us next season, was 
pitcher Sean Pedersen. He was out for the whole year," Clark said. "Some 
of the things we needed morale-wise would have been taken care of if Sean 
would have been with the ball club this season." 

Returning to the Big Eight Tournament after a two-year lapse was a 
team goal. Culp was the only team member who had played in 1990's Big 
Eight Tournament.

other things we had going on with the team, and to be able to make it to 
the Big Eight Tournament was a big accomplishment," Clark said. "It was 
the third time K-State has qualified since 1982." 

The Wildcats went 0-2 in the Big Eight Tournament against strong 
competition. The Cats finished sixth in the league for the second consecu- 
tive season and had six wins over Top 20 teams. Clark said the other teams 
were talented, which made it a bad year for the Cats to have a team of 
inexperienced players. 

The team did improve throughout the season and ended its season 

hitting at .273, an increase over last year's .250 in 24 Big Eight games. 

Despite suffering a losing season, Clark was on the verge of becoming 
the first baseball coach to win 200 games while at K-State. The 1990 Big 
Eight Coach of the Year was also approaching his 500th collegiate victory. 

"It was a season that we all learned a lot about ourselves. It (losing) makes 
you appreciate the great seasons and also makes you look in the mirror," 
Clark said. "After talking to some of the players, we found out some things 
about ourselves, some we liked, and some we didn't. 

"It (losing) makes us better and helps us adjust to some harder times in 
life and helps us handle them a little better, which is what I think the role 
of sports is. If we can't do that, then we probably shouldn't be playing."

he Junior Wildcat Club was es-

AM 580 radio announcer on the 
Wildcat Network, in 1989 to create 
a small cheering block for Wildcat 
athletics. Since its beginning, the 
club has grown to include 1 50-200 
members ranging in age from 11 
months to 15 years. 

"Basically, we wanted to create 
K-Staters from small children," said

Junior Wildcat

coordinator and 
junior in jour-

tickets to one football and one bas- 
ketball game and opportunities to 
meet their favorite athletes. The 
members' parents also received dis- 
counted tickets for the same football 
and basketball games. 

"We use the membership fee and 
a little bit of funds given to us through 
the Wildcat Network and the 
Alumni Association to provide the 
program," Meek said. "The club is 
not a moneymaker— that is not our 
purpose. Our purpose is to create a 
neat group of kids who love K- 


Throughout the year, the Junior 
Wildcat Club sponsored activities 
for its members. The main event the 
members looked forward to was 
Fantasy Day, winch took place in 
the spring to allow members to 
meet their favorite Wildcat athletes. 

"I enjoy doing it (Fantasy Day) 
because I like kids," said Ron Lucas, 
forward. "To them we are probably 
the greatest thing, so we like to 
show our appreciation." 

On Fantasy Day, Junior Wild- 
cats had the chance to play football 
and basketball games on age-appro- 
priate teams coached by athletes 
such as Lucas and point guard An- 
thony Beane. The members also 
obtained their favorite athletes' au- 
tographs and ate with football and 
basketball players. 

"I like Fantasy Day because I like 
meeting all the players," said Alex 
Brandt, a third-year member and 
first-grader at Amanda Arnold El- 
ementary School. "I like Anthony 
Beane for basketball and J.J. Smith 
for football, but I liked playing foot- 
ball the best at Fantasy Day." 

Brandt was so excited about be- 
ing a member of the club that he 
tried to recruit members from his 
first-grade class. 

"This year for show and tell, I 
brought both of my Junior Wildcat 
T-shirts and the phone number 
where they could call if they wanted 
to join," Brandt said. 

When the Junior Wildcats inter- 
acted with members of the athletic 
teams, their reactions varied from 
shyness to admiration. 

"It's a neat opportunity for both 
sides," Meek said. "The kids get to 
meet their idols, and the athletes get 
to meet their fans."

"Making it to the 
NCAA Central Regional 
for the first time makes 
it an important event." 

Mark Elliott, 
head coach 

ualifying for the NCAA Central Regional was the first time in the 
history of the men's golf program that such a feat was accomplished. The 
qualification marked the end of the 1993 spring season. 

"Making it to the NCAA Central Regional for the first time makes it an 
important event," said Mark Elliott, head coach. "I think the team really 
expected it. It's now something we look forward to attending every year." 
Although the Wildcats' attendance at the regional tournament was 
significant, the Cats did not play to their potential. The team finished last out 
of 21 teams. 

"We didn't play well at all," Elliott said. "However, making regional 
made this year's team return (in the fall) a little more confident." 

After K-State finished sixth in the 1992 Big Eight Tournament, the 
program continued to improve. 

"We have made improvements in the last few years," 
Elliott said. "Two years ago was the first time we placed 
higher than last in the Big Eight conference." 

The Cats finished seventh in the Big Eight Tourna- 
ment in Hutchinson. The team had hoped to improve 
their sixth-place finish from the previous year. Although 
they did not improve their standing, they finished the 
tournament nearly 12 strokes above their average. 
Senior Richard Laing, the team's leading player, shot 226 (74-76-76) to 
finish 12th. He was only one stroke away from making the all Big Eight 

"At the Big Eight championships, everyone was way over par," said 
junior Brett Waldman. "The weather was really bad. It was cold and windy, 
but that still was no excuse for some of the scores we brought in." 

Laing won his first tournament at the Diet Pepsi/Shocker Classic in

finished second out of 14 in the tournament. 

Laing finished his golf career unlike any other K-Stater. He became the 
first golfer to be voted Hale Irwin Co-Big Eight Player of the Year. 

"I think he deserved it," Elliott said. "For what he did for our program, 
it was a great honor for him." 

The fall season didn't show improvement in the Cats' performances. The 
team finished ninth out of 24 teams in their first tournament in Colorado 
Springs, Colo. 

Sophomore Troy Halterman, a transfer from Oklahoma State, brought 
in a third-place finish at a tournament in Fort Collins, Colo. The Cats 
finished the tournament fourth out of 12 teams, their best placing in the fall. 
"Our fall season went pretty well," said senior Chad Judd. "I think if we 
could play the way we do in practice, we would be doing awesome. We 
just need to play to our potential."

"We won a tournament 

tep by step the women's golf team continued to improve. 
In 1992 they broke a string of last-place finishes in the Big Eight 
Conference Tournament, and head coach Mark Elliott was named the Big 
Eight Coach of the Year for the team's improvement. 

In the spring of 1993, the Lady Cats won the Southwest Missouri State 
Invitational, marking the second straight year they won a tournament. They 
were led by senior Valerie Hahn, who finished second, junior Denise Pottle, 
who finished fourth, and sophomore Jacque Wright, who placed eighth. 
"We had a pretty good spring. We won a tournament, 
but then we had a bad finish at the Big Eight Tourna- 
bllt then We had a bad ment >" Wnght said. "That left us unhappy with how the 
, i season ended." 

TiniSn ai llie Dig Clgnl Hahn became the first member in the team's history to 
TOUmament* That left q ua ^fy f° r tne NCAA West Regional. At the competi- 
tion, Hahn finished 67th out of 101 golfers. Her second 
round score of 73 set a new school record. 

"I think it's nice that she got to go to the regional, said 

Elliott. "It was a nice way to end her career at K-State." 

In the fall, an experienced squad returned. Eight of 1 1 

players had played in a collegiate tournament. 

"Some of our best players are our younger players," Elliott said. "In the 

spring, they got a lot of expenence, and now it's their turn to step up for us." 

Wright eased into the opening left by Hahn. She was the top finisher in 

each of the team's six fall tournaments. Her best finish came at the Shocker 

Fall Classic where she took third. 

"Jacque established herself as the No. 1 player on our team and as one 
of the best players in the conference," Elliott said. "There is no telling how 
good she can be." 

The team placed in the Top 10 in five out of six tournaments including 
a pair of fourth-place finishes at Iowa State Cyclone Golf Classic and 
Shocker Fall Classic. 

To achieve these finishes, the team needed help from senior SarahAyn 
Morehead, Pottle and sophomore Dallas Cox. Morehead finished 2 1 st at the 
Shocker Fall Classic, just ahead of Pottle's 22nd-place finish. Cox tied with 
Wright for 15th at the Iowa State Cyclone Golf Classic. 

"We had some good trips in the fall," Wright said. "We played in some 
rough tournaments against some good teams."

Athletes learn how to prepare themselves 
to be mentally ready for games. 



thletes endured long prac- 
tices to improve their quick fakes, 
soft touches on shots and accurate 
passes. But in addition to devel- 
oping their athletic skills, athletes 
had to learn to compete mentally. 

"We're talkingabout anything 
that starts with the head and not a 
skill," said Fred Newton, director 
of University Counseling Ser- 

Newton was referring to the 
Mental Aspects of Performance, 
an independent study class he 
taught twice a week. 

"It's set up in a class format and 
includes projects and assignments, 
written tests and performance 
tests," Newton said. "Any stu- 
dent can take this class, but right 
now it's set up for the scholarly 
athlete level." 

Newton said the class was origi- 
nally used to improve academics, 
but over the last 20 years, more 
emphasis was placed on athletic 

"The difference between 
physical training and an academic 
gift is how well you do on the 
mental training," he said. 

The class focused on teaching 
students to let their minds control 
their bodies. 

"The class teaches self-regula- 
tion," Newton said. "Your mind 
controls your body by biofeed- 
back, like being aware of skin 
temperature or muscle tension." 

Deryl Cunningham, senior 
center, used techniques he learned 
in class to improve his perfor- 
mance on the basketball court. 

"It (the class) showed me tech- 
niques like how to relax and how 
to get hyped up," he said. "In a 
game I can get really mad, and 
now I can calm myself back 


These techniques were taught 
to players so they could use them 
during crucial points in a game. 

"Your mind can put probes 
off, and you 
can learn what 
buttons to 
push. When 
your skin tem- 
perature goes 
up, you know 
you need to

aced with many young players, the Wildcat tennis team's spring season 
was full of ups and downs. 

The season started with a 7-2 defeat of the Creighton Blue Jays. After 
their season opening victory, the team struggled until Big Eight play began. 
The team dominated Missouri, Iowa State and Nebraska before falling to 
Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado. 

Player's achievements distinguished the season. Senior Suzanne Sim 
competed in the Riviera all- American Championships and finished second 
in doubles play. 

"The performance of Suzanne Sim was the highlight of our spring 
season," said Steve Bietau, head coach. "She was a player who outper- 
formed her abilities and overachieved all season." 

Sim, along with senior Susana Labrador, was named to the all Big Eight 
team. Labrador finished the season with a 10-12 record in No. 1 singles. Sim 
was also named to the Phillips 66 Academic all Big Eight 
team for the third straight year. 

Finishing fifth in the Big Eight with a record of 8- 14, 
the spring results fluctuated with the growing pains of 
a young team. 

Talent sprouted from a handful of new and transfer 
international players during the fall season. 

"We started expecting a struggle, but this season is 
our best in history," Bietau said. 

Returning players from the spring season included 
sophomore Maria Uson andjunior Martine Shrubsole. Uson said the team 
members worked well together. 

"This season has pushed each of us," Uson said. "We practice at least 20 
hours a week, but there is a real competitiveness and teamwork with the 
players. We push each other." 

After several first-round tournament berths with both individual and 
double players, the team had the best season in Wildcat history. Bietau 
credited much of the team's success to the achievements of sophomore 
Karina Kuregian, a transfer player from Armenia. 

Kuregian defeated Laura Nhavrene 7-5, 6-4 at the Wildcat/Travelers 
Express Tournament to capture the No. 1 singles title. During a tournament 
at the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex, Kuregian and sophomore 
Masha Meidell defeated Nhaverene and Tracia Barnes 6-3, 6-4 to win the 
No. 1 doubles. 

Another teammate who played well was freshman Alexandra Thome, 
who placed third in No. 2 doubles with a 6-3, 6-4 defeat of Rakel Nielson 
from Tyler Community College in Tyler, Texas.

After exiting the Skytel National Clay Court Championships in Jackson, 
Miss., with a 2-1 record, Kuregian was named K-State Athlete of the Week 
Oct. 7. 

"Kuregian is a strong, physical player. She has performed exceptionally 
well this season," Bietau said. "With strong showings from Kuregian and 
Meidell, we've made history. This has been a strong season for us, and we 
have the best players in our history." 

The fall also produced a profitable second showing at the Riviera ail- 
American Tennis Championship. Kuregian and her doubles partner 
Meidell defeated a team from Cal-Irvine 6-2, 6-1 in the doubles compe- 
tition to advance to the qualifying round. 

Kuregian downed Texas A & M's Nancy Dingwall to become the 
second Wildcat ever to advance to the main draw of the Riviera tournament 
in Pacific Palisades, Calif. 

Kuregian, who was the tournament's eighth seed, eventually lost her 
10th match to UCLA's Jane Chi 6-1, 6-3. Her 9-1 record was the best in 
the tournament's history, and she advanced through four pre-qualifying 
rounds and three qualifying rounds before landing the spot among the final 
32 players. 

In addition to giving the best Wildcat performance at the tournament 
in the tennis program's history, Kuregian was the only Big Eight Confer- 
ence player left in collegiate tennis' Grand Slam. 

The season wrapped up with Kuregian and Meidell qualifying for the 
ITA Rolex Regional Championships in Salt Lake City. They were the first 
in school history to play a final round in this tournament. Together they 
won four straight doubles matches in three days, but fell short in the finals 
to KU's Kim Rogers and Abby Wood 6-1, 3-6, 6-4. The Wildcat duo 
finished fifth in the tournament.

Kuregian receives first top-25 ranking in K-State history 


t e o 

by Ted Ellet 

Breaking into the country's top 25, 
sophomore tennis standout Karina 
Kuregian made K-State history. The 
Armenian native picked up a racket 
at the age of 5 and discovered a pas- 
sion. (Photo by Cary Conover) 

She had no pre-game rituals, no heros and no lucky pair of tennis shoes. 
Sophomore tennis player Karina Kuregian said she didn't need them. 

Since the age of 5 when she received her first tennis racquet in Armenia, 
Kuregian relied on sheer talent and determination. 

"When I am playing tennis, I just try to do the same things I did during 
the last game I won," Kuregian said. "I concentrate and do my best. That's 
the only way I know how to win." 

In January, Kuregian became the first K-State tennis player to be ranked 
as one of the top 25 players in the country. She was ranked No. 20 in singles 
and No. 26 in doubles by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. 

"I was glad I was ranked 20th, but it didn't change anything inside of 
me," Kuregian said. "When my coach told me I was ranked, I thought, 
'Wow, that's great,' but I'm still the same person." 

That didn't mean she had lost her ambition, though. 

"I've been trying to practice harder now that I am ranked," she said. 
"Maybe I can get ranked even higher next time." 

Kuregian's talent was sparked by her father, who was the tennis coach 
for the Armenian National Team. 

"I can remember getting my first racquet when I was five. My father 
taught me how to play, so I guess tennis has always been a part of my life," 
Kuregian said, "but I never expected to play like I do now." 

Head coach Steve Bietau said he liked having Kuregian on the team. 

"Karina is very enjoyable to work with," Bietau said. "It's obvious she's 
a great athlete. She loves tennis and, considering her background, she is very 
appreciative of the opportunity to compete here at K-State." 

Junior teammate Brooke Brundige said Kuregian's talent was matched 
by her positive attitude toward the team. 

"I'm amazed at how humble she is," junior Brooke Brundige said. "She 
interacts really well with the team, regardless of her talent. When she's not 
playing, she is laid back and just like us, but on the court, she's amazing." 

Kuregian's long-term plans included playing tennis until she graduated, 
then trying to play at the professional level. 

"I play tennis because I love it. If I didn't, I would get bored and quit," 
she said. "I think I have done so well because I have so much fun."

"I think in practice the 

freshmen put out 100 

percent, and that also 

reflected on the older 

team members." 

Ed Broxterman, 
freshman high jumper 

acing probation from former head coach John Capriotti's violations, the 
men's and women's outdoor track teams went into the season ready to 
compete and ready to forget about the controversy. 

"It was kind of tough going through the season when our coach left and 
all that probation crap. I think it was a big thing that we went to the Big Eight 
with all the controversy. We were never once in the Topeka paper, for 
instance, for doing something good or for the way we 
competed," freshman Ed Broxterman said. "But we 
were put on the first page when the probation stuffhit. 
It was really disappointing when that's all they had to say 
about us and that wasn't our fault. They never talked 
about how we competed." 

And the teams came out competing strong. 
Five competitors became provisional qualifiers for 
the NCAA tournament. 

Both teams placed second in the three-team meet. 
Interim Coach Cliff Rovelto said the teams could have 
finished higher in Arizona, but money kept some of the members from 
traveling, allowing the team to only enter one entrant in some events. 

First place finishes were brought home by several Wildcats. Junior 
Francis O'Neill won the steeple chase and the indoor NCAA high jump 
champion sophomore Percell Gaskins took first in the long jump. 

The women captured first in three events. Lady Cat basketball sopho- 
more forward Shanele Stires won the shot put, senior Julie Jackson won the 
javelin and freshman Rahma Mateen, who competed in five different 
events, took first in the long jump and second in the triple jump. 

Weather became a factor in Arkansas at the Tyson Invitational. Cold and 
rain slowed track members, but not enough to keep them from taking some 
events. Tough competition also became a hurdle for the team to clear. The 
Wildcats took on Nebraska, Arkansas and Barton County. 

"The competition was really tough, and the weather wasn't any good. 
It rained all day and drizzled off and on. Arkansas won nationals," 
Broxterman said. "The competition was really high because between

Arkansas and Nebraska they have at least one, sometimes 

two people ranked in the top five on the national list." 

Blue ribbon finishes were recorded by O'Neill 
(1,500 meter), senior Paulette Staats (1,500 meter) and 
Jackson (javelin). 

Freshmen dominated the John Jacobs Invitational 
hosted by Oklahoma. Broxterman placed first with a 
career best 7' 3-3/4" highjump. Kristen Shultz also had 
a career best with a javelin throw of 154' 5" to finish 
second. The steeple chase was led by Chris Unthank. 

"The freshman contributed quite a bit. I think in 
practice the freshman put out 100 percent, and that also 
reflected on the older team members," Broxterman said. 

The Kansas Relays were next on the meet list. 
Windy, rainy and cold conditions hampered the meet. 
Dante McGrew was the only K-Stater to take home the 
gold after finishing strong in the triple jump with a 
distance of 50' 10-1/4." However, the teams were able 
to place in the top five in 14 events. 

"The KU Relays is a big meet," sophomore Ryan 
Clive-Smith said. "It's almost as competitive as the Big 
Eight Championships." 

Two more tough competitions were attended by the 
Cats, including the Pepsi Invitational hosted by the 
University of Oregon. 

"Oregon is like the running capital of the United 
States and we went up there," Clive-Smith said. "I ran 
my best time. I'd say that was my best achievement." 

Clive-Smith competed in the 5,000 meter and 
placed second with a time of 14:39.27. 

A fourth-place finish in the Big Eight Champion- 
ships was brought home by the men. The women 
placed third after Nebraska and Kansas. 

Nationals produced two ail-Americans for K-State. 
O'Neill placed fourth in the steeple chase and broke his 
old school record by nearly seven seconds with a time 
of 8:29.64. Wentland placed second in the highjump 
with a leap of 6' 3-1/2," which set a school record.

Percell Gaskins jumps his way to the top of track and football 




by Renee Martin 

"hen his junior high track coach told him he would never be a 
successful high jumper, Percell Gaskins refused to listen. Wanting to prove 
his coach wrong, the determined teen-ager kept practicing. 

"I didn't develop skills until ninth grade," said Gaskins, sophomore high 
jumper. "Everyone else stayed on the same plateau, but I improved." 

He improved so much that during his senior year in high school, he made 
the second best prep jump in the nation at 7 feet, 2 inches. A native ofDaytona 
Beach, Fla., Gaskins attended Northwest Oklahoma State before transferring 
to K-State in 1992, a move some people didn't think he could handle. 

"People were questioning if I could compete on a Division I level," 
Gaskins said. "I wanted to prove to them I could." 

He made his point by winning the Big Eight and NCAA Indoor Track 
high jump titles. He won the NCAA Championship title with a 7' 5-1/4" 
jump. His winning performances followed his philosophy on competing. 

"Ifl compete and come in third or fifth, that's almost a waste of my time," 
Gaskins said. "I know that sounds bad, but I want to do better. I play to win. " 

Not content with his track achievements, the 20-year-old said he also 
wanted to prove his abilities in another sport — football. 

"I love the sport," said the 6'1," 215-pound linebacker. "I spend seven 
hours a day improving my skills by lifting, working out and watching films. " 

His devotion helped him win Big Eight Newcomer of the Year. Jim Leavitt, 
co-defensive coordinator, said Gaskins made sacrifices to excel in two sports. 

"He has to go to track practices, football workouts, the weight room, 
classes and study hall," Leavitt said. "His social life is low on his priority list, 
but the trade offhe makes depends on what is most important in his life." 

Gaskins said he couldn't imagine not competing in sports. 

"My life would be a lot different ifl was at home and going to school," 
he said. "I can't even picture myself not playing sports." 

The junior high coach who told him he was in the wrong sport also 
changed his mind about Gaskins' athletic abilities. 

"When I reminded him of what he said, he laughed and asked if I'm 
going to keep telling that story," Gaskins said. "He did me a favor because 
I could have listened to him, but then I never would have gone on to be 
an NCAA champion."

"It was learning more 

about the hard work 

physically and mentally, 

day after day, and game 

in and game out." 

Patti Hagemeyer, 
head coach 

he women's volleyball team experienced a few highlights but battled 
inconsistency throughout the season. 

The team's season-ending record was 7-25 in the regular season and 0- 
8 in the Big Eight. 

Head coach Patti Hagemeyer said she was looking for a more mature 
team in the future as she summarized the year's disap- 

"It (the season) was a learning experience and a 
growth experience," Hagemeyer said. "It was learning 
more about the hard work physically and mentally, day 
after day, and game in and game-out." 

Hagemeyer said that she was looking optimistically 
toward the spring season, which consisted of seven 
weeks of practice. 

"Frustration is difficult to deal with; not winning as 
many as we would like," she said. "Realizing and 
turning it around would be our focus going into spring." 

Although the team did not end the season with a winning record, they 
made some outstanding contributions including not only wins, but personal 
achievements as well. 

In the Big Eight conference, senior Angie McKee ranked third in hitting 
percentages, and senior Stephanie Liester ranked in the Top 10 for digs. 
Team members also stood out at all of the tournaments they participated 
in. Many single-season and career records were broken throughout the past 
two seasons, Hagemeyer said. 

"We were in six tournaments this year," said Sue Medley, assistant 
coach. "Somebody was put on the all-tournament team in all of the

The team set a K-State record as the number of attacks in a single season 
jumped to 4,188, and attacks in a five-game match hit 230, which tied the 

The individual and team accomplishments were immeasurable, Dau said. 

"It's not anythingyou can measure or see unless you're part of the team," 
she said. "We really knew what it took to play competitively, but not exactly 
how much was involved. Sometimes we played competitively but not for 
a long period of time." 

Hagemeyer ranked the highs of the season with a futuristic outlook. 

"It is watching physically the maturity as they continue to get better and 
knowing what's at the end," she said. "It's a process that takes patience and 
time. As far as turning the program around, I feel quite comfortable." 

Hagemeyer's comfort didn't last. In January, she announced she was 
quitting K-State after leading the team to a winless Big Eight season. 

Zoerner turned the outlook of the season into an off-season regimen. 

"We're working out more. We're in the weight room four times a week 
and are doing more conditioning in the off-season," she said. 

Dau said the future of the team depended on consistency. 

"Physically we're good," she said. "We need to work on consistency and 
more on the mental, thinking side of the game."

"He gave me back part 

of my self-esteem, and 

he's helping me get 

back my mental edge." 

Leslie Wells, 

fter they were penalized by the NCAA for the misconduct of former 
head coach John Capriotti, the women's and men's cross country teams 
adjusted to a new coach. 

Terry Drake replaced Capriotti, who admitted to paying several athletes, 
as the cross country and distance coach. 

Drake said his training philosophy differed from that of his predecessor. 
"I knew everyone here had gone through a year 
with John (Capriotti), and I was worried about them 
accepting my ideas," he said, "but everyone did what I 
asked of them and accepted my training methods." 

The cross country team members knew as they were 
going into the season that penalties would be handed 
down by the NCAA, Drake said. 

The penalties took away one scholarship from each 
team, prohibited the athletes from participating as teams 
in the NCAA Cross Country Championships and prohibited recruiting 
until the end of the year. 

Without being allowed to recruit, the men's cross country team had only 
six runners, Drake said. 

Instead of taking entire teams, two of the best runners from each team 
were taken to the NCAA Nationals, hosted by Lehigh at Bethlehem, Pa. 
For the women's team, Paulette Staats, the team's top runner, finished 
40th in a field of 1 83. The race marked Staats' fourth-consecutive trip to 
nationals and the highest finish of her career. She was clocked at 17:27, her 
best time of the season by four seconds. Junior Jeanene Rugan placed 1 1 8th, 
her best finish in three trips to nationals with a time of 18:13. 

Selected from the men's team, senior Francis O'Neill placed 65th in the 
180-person field with a time of 31:10, and sophomore Ryan Clive-Smith 
placed 127th with a time of 32:02. 

O'Neill said he wasn't pleased with his performance during the season.

season," O'Neill said. "When it came to the race, I never had what it took to run really well." 

O'Neill said regardless of who his coach was, he wanted to train and perform well. He said 
Drake was a good influence on the team and their training methods. 

"You can't say anything bad about the guy," he said. "You sort of have to put your faith 
in your coach in order to do well. He's made it easy for us, and he's helpful and personal." 

Junior Lesley Wells also said she had a positive experience working with Drake. 

"At first when I found out he was our coach, I didn't really want to come back because I 
wasn't sure of his experience," Wells said. "Now I'm really glad I came back. He gave me back 
part of my self-esteem, and he's helping me get back my mental edge. He trusts that you'll 
motivate yourself, but we know he is always there for us as a friend and coach." 

Although the women's team won the Big Eight Championships in 1993, they were picked 
by the coaches to place fourth. The ranking motivated the team to work harder, Wells said. 

"It (the ranking) fired us up," she said, "and made us determined to go and prove them 

The women's team finished second to Nebraska with 72 points. The meet was highlighted 
with Staats fifth-place finish in the 5,000-meter race with a time of 18:00. 

The men's team placed seventh at the Big Eight Championships with 174 points. O'Neill 
placed 13th in the 8,000-meter course with a time of 25:03. 

Drake was confident in Clive-Smith's ability to take the lead as the Wildcat's top runner. 

"Ryan Clive-Smith had such a breakthrough at districts," he said. "It is important to me that 
I have a front runner. I now have a guy who will be willing to take charge next year." 

Wells also said she looked forward to stepping in and doing her part in being a positive 
example for the other women runners. 

"Everyone here at Division I is good and has extraordinary ability," she said. "It just comes 
down to who's going to run the best that day and keep the mental edge." 

Although sophomore Can Warden continually improved her times throughout the season, 
she said she didn't feel she had improved. 

"Physically, I know I'm in shape because I'm running what everyone else is running and 
putting in the workouts," Warden said. "You just can't go out there physically. You have to 
go out there mentally and physically."

eluded the accepted resignation of 
Capriotti, no postseason competi- 
tion in men's and women's track 
and cross country programs during 
the 1993-94 academic year, a loss of 
a scholarship for the men's and 
women's teams until 1995 and no 
off-campus recruiting by both track 
and cross country coaching staffs 
from December 1992 to May 1994. 

The NCAA didn't implement a 
maximum set of penalties (two-year 
probation, no expense-paid recruit- 
ing trips for one year, possible staff 
termination, loss ofpostseason com- 
petition and loss of TV opportuni- 
ties for one year) because after learn- 
ing about the violations, K-State 
launched a full investigation, and 
appropriate action was taken. 

Members of the track team said 
the ruling did affect the program. 

"They have affected our ability 
to attend a few meets. We can't 
represent Kansas State at nationals, 
and the cross country team can only 
take four people to regionals," said 
Francis O'Neill, senior men's cross 
country team member. "A normal 
team consists of five, so that means 
we have no chance of qualifying, 
and I think our women's team could 
have easily gone (to nationals)." 

O'Neill said the ruling was unfair, 
and it made him angry. 

"I wasn't even here when all this 
was happening. It's like we're get- 
ting punished for what happened 
two years ago," he said. "The rul- 
ings shouldn't have any effect on the 
athletes who are competing now." 

Rovelto said the team didn't fo- 
cus on the regulations and penalties. 

"The process of achieving goals 
excites me," he said. "The daily 
practice, seeing kids develop — that's 
what it's all about."

t was a season K-State fans thought they would never see. 
It was a season the Wildcat football team propelled themselves into the 
rankings. A season that produced a consensus all-American, along with a 
second team and honorable mention all-American. A season the Cats went 
9-2-1, complete with a bowl victory. 

The team faced a rocky start when it was short one player, the 
quarterback. Seniorjason Smargiasso didn't show up for 
the first day of fall practice, leaving the position open for 
junior Chad May, a transfer from Cal-State Fullerton. 
May had first chance to prove himself in the season 
opener against the New Mexico State Aggies at KSU 
Stadium in front of 25,936 fans. He made an immediate 
name for himself with his "helicopter" passes. He let 
loose a couple ofballs that hung in the air and somehow 
fluttered down in the hands of a K-State player. 

May also didn't waste time showing fans that he 
could move the offense. The first drive of the game went 
80 yards in 1 6 plays, ending with a one-yard touchdown 
run by junior running back J.J. Smith. 

The Cats scored again with 10:37 left in the first half with a 24-yard field 
goal by senior Tate Wright. The Aggies countered with a touchdown with 
no time remaining, the only time they would see the end zone. 

Purple and white dominated the second half. They scored seven more 
points in the third quarter on a two-yard run by May, followed by a 17-point 
fourth quarter. The drive started with a 45-yard field goal by Wright. The 
Cats scored on a 25-yard run by junior fullback Rod Schiller and a 74-yard 
punt return by senior wide receiver Andre Coleman. The return, combined 
with his other runs, broke a 43-year-old school record with 115 yards in 
punt returns for the day. Schiller led in rushing with 103 yards. 

New faces come out strong. May threw for 228 yards on 17 of 30 passes, 
and freshman wide receiver Kevin Lockett caught seven passes for 92 yards.

throughout the season with his many clutch perfor-

Frosh all-American by the Football News and second 
team all-Big Eight by the Associated Press. He shattered 
the previous Big Eight receiving record of 440 yards 
with 770 yards on 50 receptions. Lockettjoined Coleman, 
who had 761 receiving yards, to become the second pair 
of receivers to have seasons of more than 700 yards. 

K-State extended their home-game winning streak 
to eight by dominating the Western Kentucky 
Hilltoppers, 38-13. May led the attack throwing eight- 
for-eight for 159 yards in the second half. 

Defense held the Hilltoppers to 291 yards. Senior 
free safety Jaime Mendez led the defense with 20 tackles. 
Senior cornerback Thomas Randolph and junior line- 
backer Kirby Hocutt broke up Western Kentucky's 
passing offense with one interception each. 

A real test came for the football team as they traveled 
to Minnesota to face the Golden Gophers in the 
Metrodome. The Cats hadn't won a non-conference 
game on the road in 14 years. K-State put a halt to the 
18-game losing streak that began in 1979 as they snuck 
by the Golden Gophers, 30-25. 

The winning scoring drive started with a 72-yard 
punt return by Coleman to set the offense up on the 
Gophers' 24-yard line. It took about two minutes for 
the Cats to get the ball in the end zone with a 7-yard run 
by Smith. The two-point conversion failed, leaving 
3:11 on the clock. Minnesota was unable to score. 

Players said the Minnesota game indicated how the 
season would go. 

"We came together as a team, and the emotion level 
was high," Smith said. "Everyone came into their own, 

and I knew it was going to be a big season." 

Randolph agreed Minnesota was a big win. 

"The highlight of the season was beating Minnesota 
in Minnesota. We hadn't won a road game in a while," 
Randolph said. "That was a milestone in our season." 

The Cats powered into Big Eight play 4-0 after their 
Sept. 20 defeat of Temple, 36-20. It was their first 
perfect non-conference schedule since 1954. 

Big Eight play started against rival KU. Picked to 
finish seventh in the Big Eight, the Cats were out to 
show the nation what they could do. 

"We were definitely out to prove something," 
Randolph said. 'We believed we were a better team 
than everybody thought." 

The Jayhawks were looking to avenge their 1991 
loss in Manhattan, and the Cats were looking to regain 
their pride after they were slaughtered the previous year 
in Lawrence. A record crowd of 44,165 packed KSU 
Stadium to watch the teams meet for the 101st time and 
battle for the 25th Governor's Cup. 

The Cats dominated the Jayhawks in the first quar- 
ter, racking up 10 points on their first two possessions, 
but that was the last time K-State would score. 

The Hawks weren't able to put the ball into the end 
zone. They scored on three field goals from senior place 
kicker Dan Eichloff. 

Although the Cats turned the ball over three rimes, 
K-State capitalized off Smith's career-best running day 
of 135 yards and May's 159 yards of passing. 

The defense also played a huge role in the victory. 
Mendez led the team in tackles with 19, followed by 
Hocutt with 16, sophomore linebacker Percell Gaskins 
with 14, junior linebacker Laird Veatch with 12 and 
Rawlings with 10. The Cats upset the Hawks, 10-9.

The win pushed the Cats into the national polls with an appearance in the 
CNN poll at 24th. 

"The win made up for last year," said Kenny McEntyre, senior 
cornerback. "It feels good to win against KU anytime." 

The toughest part of the season laid ahead of the Cats as they faced the 
three toughest teams in the league. They played Nebraska in Lincoln, then 
Colorado followed by Oklahoma at home. 

A K-State quarterback become a star in front of 75,721 in Nebraska's 
Memorial Stadium. Both teams were 5-0 and tied for first in the Big Eight. 
Although the Huskers had a 17-point margin of victory, the final score, 
45-28, didn't represent the Cats' play as they dominated the Huskers on 
offense, beating Nebraska's 545 offensive yards with 565. The Cats fell to 
the Huskers on failed scoring attempts. 

May completed 30 of 51 passes for 489 yards, a Big Eight record. May's 
passing, added with the Cats' rushing, including 102 yards by Smith, was the 
second-highest amount (545) allowed by the Huskers during Coach Tom 
Osborne's era. Smith became only the third Cat to run for more than 100 yards 
against Nebraska and was also the fourth K-Stater to rush 100 or more yards 

in three consecutive games. 

Smith credited the offensive line 

for the Cats' ability to move the ball. 

"Everyone on the line did a 

goodjob," he said. "The holes were 

there, and I got the yards." 

Within three yards with 7:44 left 
in the game, the Cats were stopped. 
"It was a bad game from the 
point that the secondary had a bad 
game," McEntyre said. "The of- 
fense did great, and we didn't hold 
up our part of the bargain. There 
were four seniors in that secondary, 
and we didn't do our part." 

The loss brought the Cats to 5- 
1, a let down in Randolph's eyes. 
"The loss was disappointing, "he 
said. "We were 5-0 with hopes of the Big Eight Championship." 

Back in Manhattan, the Cats forgot about their loss as they faced the 
16th-ranked Colorado Buffaloes. 

"If a tie is like kissing your sister, Kansas State's sister is Darryl Hannah 
today; Colorado's is Roseanne Arnold," said Wichita Eagle columnist Fred 
Mann after the teams tied 16-16. 

With tough defense, the Cats kept the Buffaloes out of the end zone the 
first half, leaving Colorado to settle for three field goals. 

The second half belonged to the Cats. May found Coleman in the end 
zone for the first touchdown. The blocked extra point was costly. 

After a short pass to junior tight end Brad Seib for six points, the Buffs 
turned a May interception around for a touchdown. K-State had 3:57 to 
score. Wright kicked a 35-yard field goal with 21 seconds left to play.

beaten a ranked team since 1971. From the beginning, 
the underdogs dominated the game. 

The Cats scored three touchdowns before the Soon- 
ers put points on the board. With a 6-yard touchdown 
pass to sophomore wide receiver Mitch Running, a 
spectacular catch for a 22-yard touchdown by Lockett 
and a 2-yard run by May, the Cats scored 21 points by 
the third quarter. The offense also had help from 
Schiller, who ran for a record 117 yards on 19 carries. 

The Sooners put seven points on the board during 
the fourth quarter, too late to stop the slaughter. The 21- 
7 win moved K-State to No. 18 in the polls and marked 
their fourth-consecutive Homecoming victory. 

"Everybody's always talking about the Big Three 
(Nebraska, Oklahoma and Colorado), so it feels good to 
do as well as we did," McEntyre said. 

The possibility of the team going 10-1-1 and finish- 
ing second in the conference looked bright, but the idea 
didn't last. The team's visit to Ames, Iowa, to play Iowa 
State resulted in a heartbreaking loss. 

The Cyclones came out early with a 6-0 lead, but the 
Cats scored before halftime to put them ahead, 7-6. 

Third quarter belonged to K-State, but the Cyclones 
used the fourth quarter to score 2 1 points to the Cats' six. 
The loss left the Cats a win to be eligible for a bowl bid. 

"The worst part about the loss is that a win might 
have put us in a New Year's Day bowl," McEntyre said. 
"It was a definite let down." 

Still looking for a bowl bid, the Cats came home to 
face the Missouri Tigers. In the first quarter, K-State 
took a 10-0 lead on a 49-yard field goal by Wright and 
a touchdown pass to junior tight end Brain Rees. May's 
pass set a Big Eight record for throwing a touchdown 

pass in nine consecutive games. 

Fighting back in the third quarter, the Tigers scored 
two touchdowns before May connected with Coleman 
for a 27-yard touchdown. 

With a 65-yard touchdown pass from May to 
Coleman and a 1-yard run by May, the Cats pulled 
ahead, winning 31-21, making them eligible for a bowl. 
The game extended their home-winning streak to 13. 

The Oklahoma State Cowboys gave the Cats a run 
for their money in the season's last game. K-State trailed 
the Cowboys 14-17 with only 58 seconds on the clock. 

In 4 1 seconds, May overcame two penalties and took 
the ball 80 yards to score the final touchdown. The Cats 
had no time-outs left to stop the clock. 

A five-yard penalty for illegal procedure started the 
drive on the 15-yard line. May found Lockett on the 
sideline for an 18-yard gain and a first down. Another 
illegal procedure call pushed the Cats back 5 yards. May 
found Coleman for a 24-yard gain with 38 seconds left. 

May then found Running after an Oklahoma State 
time-out. The Cowboys were called for pass interfer- 
ence on the next play, putting the Cats at the 2-yard line. 
A connection with Seib put the Cats on top 2 1 - 1 7 with 
17 seconds left. The point after by Wright tied him for 
the career-scoring lead with 196 points. 

The team ended the season as Copper Bowl cham- 
pions and ranked 20th in the nation. 

"I think we should have been ranked higher," 
Randolph said. ' ' I know we could have beat some of the 
teams ranked above us, but it's up to the writers." 

Regardless of the ranking, the players produced a 
season that filled the record books. 

"We had a lot of determined players on the team, and 
great seniors compared to previous seasons," McEntrye 
said. "That helped us win more games."

Transfer Chad May leads K-State to a 9-2-1 record

With the departure of quarterback 
Jason Smargiasso, transfer Chad May 
stepped up to lead the Wildcats to 
their best football season since 1931.

j;;;j j [ { I ayday! Mayday! 

K-State needed help. K-State needed an offense. K-State needed a quarterback. 

Chad May answered the call. 

Junior quarterback May transferred to K-State his sophomore year from 
Cal-State Fullerton but had to sit out a year to fulfill NCAA requirements. 

"I feel I was the missing link they needed," he said. "If they had had a 
quarterback, they could have gone just as far last year." 

When May was recruited to the Wildcat football team, he was not 
guaranteed a position. At the time he decided to come to K-State, Jason 
Smargiasso, who was a year older than May, was the No. 1 quarterback. 

"I took a recruiting trip out here," May said. "The football program was 
on the rise, and the quarterback situation was up in the air when I came. 

The only competition Mw and Smargiasso faced was during a spring practice. 

"In the locker room, one of the coaches asked who could throw the 
farthest. We threw one time, and it was over," May said. "I threw the first 
one 83 yards, and he threw about 67 yards." 

Smargiasso left without warning, without showing up for the first fall 
practice. May didn't take long to prove himself as the new No. 1 quarterback. 

"Before the season, I think people had doubts about me," he said. "After 
the first couple of games, the whole team meshed, and everything clicked." 

The Cats won their first five games before falling to Nebraska, 28-45. 

Against Nebraska, May threw for a Big Eight record of 489 yards on 30- 
of-51 completions. He was named Big Eight Offensive Player of the Week 
after the Nebraska game and also after the Cats defeated Oklahoma State, 
21-17. May led the Cats on a 41 second, 80-yard drive to score. 

"I just like to go out there and get the job done," May said. "I let my 
actions speak for themselves on the field." 

May was chosen by the Big Eight coaches and the Associated Press as Big 
Eight Offensive Newcomer of the Year. He threw for a total of 2,682 yards, 
with an average of 226.55 yards per game. 

"I was a part ofit (the winning season), but I didn't do it by myself. There 
are 1 1 guys out there who all help," May said. "I was part of the main 
ingredient. I go out there and do my part and hope that everyone else does."

f£ copper bowl 

Copper Bowl Champs 


* t first, there was concern about how well K-Staters could travel. 
People wondered how many fans would follow the team to Tucson, Ariz., 
but K-State fans proved they traveled well when more than 1 5,000 Cat fans 
made the road trip to the Copper Bowl. 

Athletic director Max Urick summed up the fin excitement during the 
Kickoff Luncheon Dec. 28. when he told the attending 2,000 football 
players and fans that when the sun started to set, and they began to see a 
purple haze on the horizon, beware because K-State fans were coming by 
the thousands. 

I was lucky enough to be one of the thousands. 

By hitting the road instead of the friendly skies, I had the advantage of 
enjoying the scenery. The 20-hour drive was filled with run-ins of K-State 
fans. Distance didn't seem to matter 
to these travelers. They just wanted 
to watch K-State play in a bowl. 

While some piled in their cars 
decorated with purple and white 
writing and wildcat logos, others 
loaded on buses and planes to make 
the trip. Twenty chartered buses 
and 88 planes brought fans to the 
bowl, including a group of 500 Cat 
backers from Alaska. 

On the eve of the game, fans 
met at the Westin La Paloma to get 
fired up. About 5,000 people packed 
into the resort for the biggest pep 
rally in school history. 

The feeling in the room was 
exhilarating. Purple pride filled the 
air, and the look on the players' faces 
when they entered the room re- 
vealed that they were grateful to all 

the fans who never gave up. I remembered that in 1989 we finally won a 
game. It was one of the greatest moments Wildcat fans experienced. 

Excitement filled the city of Tucson. The hype surrounding the bowl 
was incredible. Several citizens of Tucson said they were thankful to us for 
being there. 

The blessed day, Dec. 29, finally arrived. When I woke up that 
morning, I had no idea what a fabulous day this would be. I had no idea 
the name K-State football was going to make for itself. 

I arrived at the University of Arizona's stadium after attending a parade 
downtown where the streets swarmed with purple. 

Riding the elevator to the press box, I heard that the spread favored K- 
State by seven. The teams were evenly matched with records of 8-2-1 (K- 
State) and 8-3 (Wyoming). 

As I looked from the press box across the stadium at the record-breaking 
crowd of 49,075 fans, I was amazed by all the purple. Wildcat fans seemed to 
outnumber the Cowboy's brown and gold fans two-to-one. What looked 
like hundreds of purple flags waved in the sky. Approximately 2.7 million 
ESPN viewers were about to watch the purple haze cheer on the Cats. 

The beginning of the game left me a little worried. Wyoming took the 
kickoffand on their first possession scored a touchdown. I thought to myselt 
that this was going to be a long night. Fortunately, the Cowboys were called 
for a false-start penalty, and the touchdown was called back. 

That was the only wake-up call the Wildcat defense needed. Wyo- 
ming had to settle for a 35-yard field goal. 

K-State's first possession resulted in a 1 2-yard touchdown reception by 
senior wide receiver Andre Coleman, the first bowl touchdown in K-State 
history. Senior place kicker Tate Wright missed the extra point. Luckily it 
didn't come back to haunt us.

Wyoming got into scoring position on their next possession but were 
stopped by second-team all-American senior cornerback Thomas Randolph. 
Randolph picked the pass from Wyoming's senior wide receiver Ryan 
Yarborough in the end zone. 

Senior quarterback Chad May continued to push the offense down the 
field with the help of junior running back J.J. Smith. Smith had an 
exceptional game, breaking his way through Wyoming's defense for the 
Copper Bowl rushing record with 133 yards. 

Wyoming's head coach Joe Tiller was impressed with Smith's perfor- 

"We couldn't stop that little rascal," Tiller said. 
K-State's second possession ended in a two-yard touchdown run by 
May. Wright hit the point after to boost the score to 15-3. 

Wyoming scored their first 
touchdown on a run by junior 
fullback Ryan Christopherson, 
shrinking the gap. However, the 
gap didn't stay small for long. Be- 
fore the close of the first half, K- 
State made their break away on a 
68-yard punt return by Coleman, 
and May ran the ball in for two 
points after the touchdown. Kansas 
State 24, Wyoming 10. 

The second half belonged to 

May showed off his arm with 
a 61 -yard pass to Coleman for a 
touchdown and then a 46-yard 
pass to freshman wide receiver 
Kevin Lockett, who made an ac- 
robatic catch for six points. The 
two throws from May tied a Cop- 
per Bowl record for touchdown 
passes. Wyoming seemed to be 
screaming Mayday. 

The next score came fromjun- 
ior running back Leon Edwards 
who pounded down the field 13 
yards for the touchdown. Wyo-

be MVP. "I thought it would take more than one intercep- 
tion, though," McEntyre said. (Photo by Brian W. Kratzer) 

ming fans were slowly exiting the stadium. The spanking was about to be 

The Cowboys tried to fight back. They scored their final touchdown 
after Joe Hughes was injured and junior back-up quarterback John Gustin 
came in and passed one for one and a touchdown. 

That was the end of the plus column for the Cowboys. The Wildcat 
defense showed no mercy as they scored the final points of the game with 
an interception by senior cornerback Kenny McEntyre, who ran it back 37 
yards. K-State 52, Wyoming 17. 

McEntyre's play and his 1 1 tackles, nine solo, won him the award of 
defensive MVP. 

Coleman's eight receptions for 144 yards, one for a touchdown, and 
his punt return for a touchdown earned him offensive MVP. 

As a team, the Wildcats broke the bowl record for points scored and 
point spread. The team won respect and sharpened their national image as 
they brought home the first-ever Wildcat bowl victory with a 52-17 
slaughtering of the Cowboys. 

The pre-season No. 7 pick in the Big Eight surprised the nation with 
an almost perfect season that had a perfect ending. It was the game that took 
the tarnish off the Copper Bowl, said one Tucson reporter. It was one game 
that would live in my memory, the memories of fans and especially those 
of the players.

Team chaplains help players find inner strength 
through prayer and spiritual guidance 

efore a basketball hit the floor 
or a football was kicked, teams had a 
pre-game strategy — prayer. 

The Rev. Sterling Hudgins and 
the Rev. Don Walker, sports chap- 
lains, were available to the teams for 
guidance, but each had a different 
approach to religion in sports. 

Hudgins, women's basketball 
chaplain, said he considered himself 
more of a supporter than a spiritual 
leader. He said 
he did not ad- 
vocate any spe- 
cific religion. 

"What I try 
to do is to be 
more of an en- 
courager and 
Hudgins said. "I 
try to be a sup- 
porter for 
coaches and 
team players, 
and I do that 
through obser- 
vation. I try to 
get them to be- 
lieve in them- 

He said it 
wasn't his place 
to push religion 
on players. They 
came to him 
when they had questions about God 
they wanted answered. 

"In a sports environment, I be- 
lieve depending on the situation, 
God will come up," Hudgins said. 
"It depends on the person's experi- 
ence with God." 

Andrea O'Neal, senior guard, 
said Hudgins gave helpful perspec- 
tives on life, not just basketball, and 
religion was a part of it.

"It helps you through rimes when 
you're not feeling the best," O'Neal 
said. "It puts you in a whole new 

Junior forward Shanele Stires 
thought of religion and basketball as 
being on different planes. Hudgins 
and Stires were close friends, and she 
said he helped her through difficult 

"I thank the Lord for my abili- 
ties," Stires said. "But beyond ap- 
preciation for my talents, it doesn't 
go any further than that." 

Walker viewed his duty as the 
football team's chaplain in a differ- 
ent manner than Hudgins. He said 
he assisted in the discovery of the 
spirituality of a player. How a player 
acted it out was their preference. 

"I try to help athletes to find a 
balance in life," Walker said. "In 
everyone there is the physical, emo- 
tional, social, intellectual and the 
spiritual. My goal is to try to culti- 
vate and grow the spiritual aspects in 
their lives." 

Warren Claassen, senior place 
kicker, said Walker applied his 
preaching to football because it was 
easier for the players to understand. 
Claassen said religion was a tool that 
made coping with problems easier. 

"It gives me the strength to keep 
going and reassurance that no mat- 
ter what happens, God's still in 
control of everything," Claassen 

Senior center Quentin Neujahr 
prayed before every game and said 
he found added support in the 
parables Walker told at pre-game 

"In the 55 games I've suited up 
for, he hasn't given the same story 
twice, which is pretty unique," 
Neujahr said. 

296 % religion 

In the locker room before their game 
against Iowa State, members of the 
women's basketball team pray the Lord's 
Prayer. To many, prayer was an 
important part of basketball, but

religion on players. (Photo by Darren

"We've got to think

and we've got to think

Brian Agler, 
head coach 

he women's basketball team had a new coach, a new offense and a new 

Coach Brian Agler was a veteran of turning teams around, having done 
so twice in his 10 years of coaching. Agler came from the University of 
Missouri-Kansas City where he had an 85-54 five-year record. His team also 
went 5-0 against Big Eight teams Kansas, Oklahoma State, Missouri and 
Iowa State. He hoped to use some of his coaching 
techniques to turn the women's basketball team around. 
The basis for the new offense was a five-man 
motion, Agler said. Everyone was able to play all of the 
positions, which allowed team members to play to their 

Agler said the coaching staff was demanding, and 
one of its demands was a winning attitude. Every drill 
in every practice had a winner and a loser. 
"We've got to think like we are together, and we've got to think like we 
are champions," Agler said. 

Shanele Stires, junior forward, said the new offense Agler brought with 
him was better because it had a lot of motion. 

"It gives you the freedom individually to be able to do what you need," 
Stires said. "It's going to be difficult to defend. It's going to cause people 
some problems." 

Andrea O'Neal, senior guard, said the coaching change complimented 
her game and made her more confident. 

"It's been less stressful because of the attitude of the coaches," Stires said. 
"They believe in you, although they are more demanding. They make you 
believe you can win." 

The team posted a 5-4 record in non-conference action. One of the 
losses was against Wichita State, 67-54.

Stires said the team's first conference win against 

Missouri Jan. 9 gave the team confidence and strength- 
ened the players' outlook on the season. 

"The first Missouri game was a big win for us," Stires 
said. "It set the tone for us knowing we can compete." 

After losing the next two games on the road to Iowa 
State, 58-44, and Nebraska, 78-58, the team returned to 
knock off Okla- 
homa State, 75- 
63, and Okla- 
homa, 72-54. 

Stires said she 
profited person- 
ally from the 
wins. She was 
the top scorer o( 
the Oklahoma 
game with 32 
points and had 
the most boards 
with nine. 

"It happened 
to be a good 
weekend for myself individually," Stires said. 

Agler said whether the team won or lost, he was 
impressed with the team's performance in different 
games. Even though the team lost 66-57 to Colorado, 
ranked No. 3 in the nation, Agler said they played well. 

"There are some good teams in the conference that 
we've played well against at times," he said. 

The team picked up three more wins against Iowa

State, 79-60, Oklahoma, 70-71, and Detroit Mercy, 
64-50, before defeating Sacramento State, 69-55, in the 
last home game of the season. 

Agler said the game was closer than what the score 
showed. He said Sacramento State's and the nation's 
leading scorer, Kristy Ryan, scored 27 points, one point 
shy of her average. 

"The game could have been disastrous. They're a 
well-coached team," Agler said. "Sacramento State is a 

good basketball 
team; nobody 
can play like 
Kristy Ryan." 

Senior guard 
Lynn Holzman 
said Agler was a 
source of moti- 

"He never 
gave up on us," 
Holzman said. "I 
wish I had an- 
other year, but 
(O'Neal) and I 
can say we were 
the beginning." 

Although the season ended on a down note with a 
61-51 loss to Oklahoma State in the Big Eight Tourna- 
ment, two players captured honors. 

Junior transfer guard Shawnda DeCamp was named 
Big Eight Newcomer of the Year and a second-team all

team all Big Eight.

the women's basketball team looked for a boost after a season that pro- 
duced only one Big Eight win. A new coach and a community college 
transfer student provided the boost that put the Lady Cats back on track. 

Shawnda DeCamp, junior transfer from Northeastern Oklahoma 
A&M Community College led the Lady Cats with a 23.5 scoring average 
through the first nine games of the season. 

"When Shawnda gets the ball and can score, the other players follow 
her lead and start scoring also," Coach Brian Agler said. 

DeCamp, a 5-foot-9~inch wing from Locust Grove, Okla., followed 
Agler to K-State. 

"Agler recruited me to play for UMKC before he got this job at K- 
State," she said. "Then, on May 14, one day before the May 15 signing 
deadline, he got the job here, so I decided to sign with K-State." 

DeCamp said she had a lot of respect for Agler and his coaching style. 

"Ijust really wanted to play wherever he would be coaching," DeCamp 
said. "I knew he would develop a winning program, and that was 
something I wanted as part of my college basketball career." 

As a new player for the Lady Cats, DeCamp said getting to know her 
teammates was a challenge she enjoyed. 

"Everyone has to figure out each other's strengths and weaknesses, ' ' she 
said. "Then we can start to do the things that need to be done." 

Kjersten Larson, freshman point guard, said DeCamp helped teammates 
work on their weak areas and gave compliments when they performed well. 

"Even though Shawnda is the main scorer, she relies on us to get her 
the ball, and then she can do what she does best," Larson said. "I know it 
is my job to get her the ball, and if I do it well, she can score." 

The statistics revealed DeCamp could add points to her team's score. 
She scored 50 points in four NJCAA Tournament games in 1992 to lead 
her community college team to a third place finish in the nation. 

For the Lady Cats, DeCamp nailed 42 three-point field goals in the first 
nine games of the season. Her expertise in sinking treys resulted in her 
winning the AT&T Long Distance Award for the most three-point field 
goals per game in NCAA Women's Division I games played through 
December. She averaged 4.7 per game.

The Big Eight will no longer consist of eight schools 
after four Texas schools join the conference in 1996 




These are the universities given a chance 
to join the Big Eight. 
LUBBOCK - Texas Tech Red Raiders 
WACO -Baylor Bears 
' AUSTIN - Texas Longhoms 
These colleges did not receive an 
invitation to enter the Big Eight 
HOUSTON - Rice Owls, Houston Congers 
FORT WORTH - Texas Christians Hornfrogs 
DALLAS - Southern Methodist Mustangs 

ot everyone received an invi- 
tation to the ball. 

In February, the Big Eight Con- 
ference asked Texas, Texas A&M, 
Texas Tech and Baylor tojoin. Their 
respective boards of regents voted 
unanimously to join the Big Eight 
starting in 1996, severing all ties with 
the Southwest Conference. 

The ugly stepsisters of the South- 
west Conference — Rice, Hous- 
ton, Southern Methodist and Texas 
Christian — weren't invited tojoin. 
Each school that received an in- 
vitation accepted within a week. 
The offer was for 
all or none of the 
universities to 

Max Urick, 
athletic director, 
said the expan- 
sion haci few 
drawbacks, if any. 
"They (the 
athletic direc- 
tors) are very ex- 
cited," Urick 
said. "I can't 
think of a disad- 
vantage right 
now, but there is 

KATIE WALKER/Collegian SOlllC anxiety in 

not knowing what all the impacts 
will be yet." 

Despite not knowing what di- 
rection the conference was going 
and how big it would become, uni- 
versity officials representing the new 
members saw the expansion as the 
right alternative. E. Dean Gage, 
Texas A&M's interim president, said 
the schools involved would benefit. 

"This new alignment not only 
offers new opportunities for all 12 
universities in men's and women's 
intercollegiate athletics," Gage said, 
"but further establishes an even closer 
relationship in the areas of teaching, 
research and public service." 

The realignment was driven by 

the possibility of increasing revenues 
through a more lucrative TV con- 
tract, Urick said. 

Urick said the greatest benefit of 
the realignment would be a more 
stable conference. 

"I think it will produce immedi- 
ate and long-tenri stability, which 
will in turn help the University," 
Urick said. "In the immediate fu- 
ture, it will have TV appeal for 
football in particular. Wejust don't 
know how it will affect other sports 
yet. It was all driven by the (football) 
TV market." 

That new television market had 
the potential to draw a multi-mil- 
lion contract with ABC and ESPN, 
said Bill Snyder, head football coach. 

"The intent in which all this was 
done was to keep the Big Eight 
intact and to increase revenues," 
Snyder said. "There's a lot of talk 
right now about television contracts 
up to $100 million. That would be 
a big asset to the University." 

Even though the University may 
benefit from the realignment, he 
had some reservations about many 
details that had not been addressed. 

"All I can really say is there is still 
so much to be worked out, how we 
fit into the mix is still uncertain," 
Snyder said. 

The Texas schools had strong 
football traditions, but there was 
concern the Big Eight added some 
"Colorados" to the conference who 
excelled in football but had lacklus- 
ter performances in basketball. 

Each of the four Texas universi- 
ties finished the 1 993 men's basket- 
ball season with winning records. 

The realignment included pos- 
sible plans to split the new confer- 
ence into two six-team divisions. 
Oklahoma and Oklahoma State 
wouldjoin the new Texas schools in 
the southern division, and the re- 
maining universities would make 
up the northern division.

he long, outstretched arms of Coach Dana Airman symbolized the 
Wildcat basketball season. 

In a post-season press conference, Airman said the team didn't perform well. 

"We worked hard in practice, but we just didn't play well," he said. "We 
played hard in almost all the games, but things just didn't go right." 

The Wildcats had moments of glory, but those moments were only that, 
and the team never managed to string those moments 
into a successful season. 

The season started with a loss to Southern Mississippi 
74-60, their first season-opener loss in nine years. 

Probably the biggest reason for the performance was 
that K-State was missing their top returner from the 
1992-93 season — senior guard Askia Jones. 

Jones was sidelined with an injury, and the Golden 
Eagles took advantage of it by overcoming a three-point 
halftime deficit to escape with the win. 

Jones made his presence felt in K- State's next game 
against Texas A&M. He came off the bench in the 
middle of the first half and sparked the Cats to a 63-54 
victory over the Aggies. Jones finished with 27 points. 

"He (Jones) helped guide people into the right places," Altman said. "He 
was involved in 90 percent of our points, and Skijust played for 26 minutes." 

With Jones now in the Cats' rotation, K-State continued to roll with 10- 
straight victories over non-conference opponents. 

In the win against Coppin State, Jones scored 24 points. He also hit six 
three-pointers, including three in a row to allow the Cats to pull away. 

In their stretch of 10 straight victories, the Cats added a mid-season 

tournament championship, winning the Hawaii-Nike Festival with wins 

against Southwest Texas and Hawaii.

Askia Jones tops the charts in scoring and 3-point field goals 



by Jenni Stiverson 

Following in the footsteps of his fa- 
ther, Wali Jones, Askia Jones wanted 
to turn professional. The elder Jones 
played in the NBA for 10 years in- 
cluding a championship season in 
1966-67 with the Philadelphia 
76ers and Wilt Chamberlin. 
"My ultimate goal is to go to the 
NBA to get a chance to make it, "he 
said. "I'm going to play as long as 
possible. " 
(Photo by Cary Conover) 

he'll be remembered as one of the all-time scoring greats. 
L Senior guard Askia Jones, better known as Ski to Wildcat fans, will 
leave K-State atop the career scoring charts sitting behind only Mike Evans 
and Rolando Blackman. 

The 6-foot-5-inch San Antonio native was a standout at Marshall High 
School, averaging 33 points and 1 1 rebounds his senior year. He was named 
Junior Olympic ail-American. Jones teamed up with Shaquille O'Neal to 
lead San Antonio to the Junior Olympic championship. 

In his collegiate debut, he scored 13 points. He was named to UPI's all 
Big Eight freshman team after averaging eight points and 2.8 rebounds. 

After he broke his ankle at the Olympic Festival that summer, he wasn't 
disappointed to be redshirted. 

"I wanted to redshirt, so it was all right," Jones said. "I only shot 1 5 three- 
pointers my freshman year and made four. I made 78 my sophomore year. 
Sitting out helped a lot." 

During his sophomore year, Jones led the Cats in scoring, averaging 15.5 
points and 4.3 rebounds. He shot 40 percent from three-point land, 
beginning his reputation as a leader. 

"I see my role as a leader, somebody to step up when the game gets tight," 
Jones said. 

His last year at K-State began with a scare. At the beginning of the season, 
fluid on his knee put Jones in the hospital. He missed the season's first game, 
which the Cats lost to Southern Mississippi. 

"That was scary — very scary," Jones said. "They told me I would be 
out three to four weeks, and that's all it was." 

Jones came back from his injury and exploded for 27 points against Texas 
A&.M in 26 minutes of play and hit four of seven three-pointers. 

"I had a frustrating year individually. I put a lot of pressure on myself to 
do well," he said. "I'm never satisfied. I always have to do better." 

And better he did. He ended his career at K-State by dazzling basketball 
fans. In his last game in Bramlage against Fresno State in the third round of 
the NIT, he hit 14 of 18 three-pointers and scored 62 points in 28 minutes, 
making him the scoring leader in Division IA basketball for the season.

Big Eight Indoor Championships at Oklahoma, Feb. 
25-26. Showalter placed third in the 55-meter hurdles 
with a time of 8.23 seconds, and Owens placed third in 
the 55-meter dash with a time of 7.10. Chancler- 
McAlpin also finished strong. 
"Lover placed fifth in the 600-yard run," Rovelto said. "She did a 
fantastic job for us and did it because she worked hard." 

Junior Nicole Green broke K-State's record in both the 200 and 400 at 
the championships and qualified for the NCAA National Indoor Track and 
Field Meet in Indianapolis. Green placed second in the 200 with a time of 
24.38 and second in the 400 with a time of 53.79. 

Performing a personal record, junior Lesley Wells won the 1,000 with 
a time of 2:54. 02. 

"Wells did a goodjob and competed very well," Rovelto said. "She took 
advantage of an opportunity and went out and won it."

With many athletes redshirted, 
including seniors Gwen Wentland

Steve Duren, both teams looked 
forward to having a strong season in 1995. 

Being redshirted during the outdoor and indoor 
seasons allowed Wentland to participate in other meets 
outside college track and field. 

"It made no sense for me to compete for the team this 
year because of our NCAA situation," she said. "Next

Although the teams were not allowed to compete 
for points together, Wentland said this wasn't a factor in

you but tells you how it is." 

With K-State serving as hosts for the 1995 Big Eight

we've had in a long time to achieve that goal," he said.

Special food lines provide scholarship football and

seven days a week, had several food 
choices. (Photo by Cary Conover) 

cholarship athletes on the foot- 
ball and men's basketball teams had 
little problem adjusting to cafeteria 

They ate their meals at the Train- 
ing Table, a line in Derby Food 
Center specifically for these athletes. 
"The Training Table is only for 
scholarship athletes from the rev- 
enue-generating sports of football 
and men's basketball," said Mark 
Edwards, Derby 
unit director. 

Players from 
the revenue- 
generating teams 
were allowed to 
eat there because 
their sports 
earned money to 
pay for the food. 
the women's 
basketball team 
members occa- 
sionally received 
food from the 
Training Table. 
"We some- 
times serve the 
Lady Cats," Ed- 
wards said. "We 
offer them some 
pre-game meals." 
Members of 
the football and 
men's basketball 
teams ate lunch 
and dinner there 
seven days a 
week, and they 
also received 
pre-game and post-game meals and 
supplemental snacks. 

"We provide the pre-game meal 
so the coaches know what their 
players are eating before competi- 

tion," Edwards said. 

Heath Perry, Training Table 
coordinator, worked with the 
strength coaches for football and the 
head trainer and assistant coach for 
basketball to arrange special require- 
ments for the athletes. 

Athletes received the standard 
menu of two or more entrees, three 
or four starches and two vegetables, 
which was the same menu other 
students received, but they got big- 
ger portions. They also were allowed 
to choose extras like chicken, pasta, 
fish, hoagies, fresh fruit and desserts. 

"The menu is the standard menu 
developed by a dietician that is served 
to all residence hall members, but for 
Training Table we add extra carbohy- 
drates and proteins," Perry said. 

"On unpopular meal days, I add 
extra things to make sure the guys 
are still getting enough food because 
we don't want them to have to eat 
somewhere else after they leave here . " 

The staffused color-coded dots so 
players knew what foods were high 
in protein, carbohydrates and fat. 
They had blue tickets for players who 
needed to gain weight, and red tickets 
for those who needed to lose weight. 

Since a majority of the athletes 
were far from home, Edwards and 
his staff tried to maintain a homey 
atmosphere at the Training Table. 

"Karen Scroggins, who is head 
of the Training Table fine, acts like 
a mom away from home because 
she is always making sure the guys 
are getting what they need," 
Edwards said. 

Athletes said they appreciated 
the special meals. 

"Training Table is great, espe- 
cially after a hard practice, because 
they treat us so well," junior line- 
backer Kirby Hocutt said.

Brandt counsels student athletes on their classes and crises 

o r 


by Robyn Nash 

giood coaches helped athletes become successful in their sports, but 
another coach helped them succeed academically. 
Academic counselor Patsy Brandt made sure athletes moved in the 
right direction in the classroom. Brandt'sjob included tracking the academic 
progress of athletes and helping them determine their majors and classes. 

"Patsy does a good job making sure students' academic needs are 
accounted for," said Veryl Switzer, associate director of Academic Affairs for 
Intercollegiate Athletics. "She has been a difference in many of the students' 
academic progress." 

Brandt arrived at K-State six years ago. After she graduated from the 
University of Missouri, Brandt coached women's tennis for three years, 
making her the youngest college tennis coach in the United States at that 
time. She also worked part time in academic services, which began a career 
that led her to K-State. She said her personal skills helped her be successful 
in her job. 

"I think some of the things I do best are listening and helping students 
sort out their choices," she said. "That's something I enjoy doing." 

She said some students needed her guidance more than others. 

"To some, graduating is the hardest thing for them to do, but when they 
do it, it feels great, and I can feel a part of that," Brandt said. 

Besides helping athletes with their classes, Brandt counseled those 
struggling to keep up with outside activities. 

"I help them find a balance between the heavy load of academics and the 
heavy, heavy load of their sport," she said. "Besides all of that, there's a lot 
of pressure on them on campus because of their prominence." 

Student athletes said they appreciated the support Brandt provided them. 

"She's organized in what she does and takes the matter seriously. If there's 
a problem or something doesn't go right, she'll get on the phone and try to 
correct it," said Angie McKee, senior volleyball player. 

Brandt spread her enthusiasm of K-State by helping recruit students. A 
promoter of K-State, she said she liked working for the University. 

"I'm in an atmosphere where I get to be involved in a lot of different areas 
that interest me. It's really unique in that way," Brandt said. "You get to put 
your finger in every part of the University with this kind of job." 

/icademic counselor Patsy Brandt 
helped athletes choose a major and 
classes and monitored their accom- 
plishments. "She has been a difference 
in many of the students 'academic 
progress, "said Veryl Switzer, associ- 
ate director of Academic Affairs for 
Intercollegiate Athletics. (Photo by

fter long days of classes, students retreated to residence halls, greek 
houses or apartments to escape college pressures. They 
pushed classwork aside to attend apartment complex 
parties, pomp Homecoming floats or take country 
dance lessons with fellow residence hall members. 

Apartment hunting was made difficult after the 
summers sudden flood caused local families to rent 
apartments. Greeks also faced difficulties including the 
unexpected closure of the Kappa Delta sorority. 

Whether they were struggling to pay the rent or 
quarreling with new roommates, students overcame 
housing problems that came without warning. 7/

The chocolate bells hung to the

the lemon bells hung from the right. 
Members only were to ring them

Visitors sometimes rang the bells

oyd Hall, along with Ford and 
Haymaker halls, won first place in 
the residence hall category during 
week, Oct. 25-30. 
Paula Ansay, 
Boyd president 
and junior in 
marketing, said 
Boyd residents 
were enthusias- 
tic about Home- 


"I was really 
impressed by the 
hard work and 
the number of people who partici- 
pated," she said. 

Ansay said Boyd, Haymaker and 
Ford placed first in the Crazy Cat 
Kick-ofF, window painting and pa- 
rade competitions. 

"In past years, the amount of 

involvement was lower. This year 
the organization and communica- 
tion were much better," Ansay said. 
"I think that's what made it a success." 

Elizabeth Enslow, junior in sec- 
ondary education, said she enjoyed 
participating on Boyd's behalf. 

"My favorite part was the pa- 
rade," she said. "Riding on the float, 
cheering and handing candy to the 
spectators were great experiences." 

Enslow said she sometimes felt 
like Homecoming was just for the 
greek community, excluding the 
residence halls. However, Ansay said 
Boyd residents were more inclined 
to participate than other halls. 

"We are a smaller hall, so it is 
easier to get people to participate," 
she said. 

Getting people to participate 
wasn't always easy, Ansay said. 

"We can't require people to par-

Mikki Tice, social chairwoman 
for Boyd and sophomore in arts and 
sciences, was pleased with the 
amount of people who competed. 
In the future, she hoped the halls 
would work together and compete 
directly with the greek commu- 

"The hardest part for us was 
getting everyone together," Tice 
said. "We literally went door to 
door in Haymaker to get everyone 
out at the events." 

Participating in Homecoming 
helped the residents become closer 
friends, Ansay said. 

"Homecoming events were a 
good chance to meet people," she 
said. "The people who did get in- 
volved had fun."

"We're all stuck out here in the

hen Ford Hall residents moved in, 
news of a new assistant director 
spread from floor to floor. Sightings 
of the assistant director, who began 
working Aug. 1, prompted ques- 
tions and a few stares. Eventually, 
residents of the all-female hall ad- 
justed to the lone male employee. 

Peter Schmidt, graduate student 
in student counseling/personal ser- 
vices, didn't anticipate any problems 
when he moved to Ford's fifth floor. 

"I viewed it as an opportunity to 
work with people and get some 
experience," he said. 

Schmidt lived in a room equipped 
with a private bathroom. 

"His room is more in the lobby 
than on either wing," said Debbi 

Wolford, director of Ford. "He's 
the first male assistant director I've 
worked with." 

Schmidt was a productive addi- 
tion to the staff, Wolford said. 

"He supervises the (reception) 
desk and helps with the supervision 
of the staff," she said. "Pete is impor- 
tant in the day-to-day operation and 
training of the staff." 

Barbara Stucky, Ford's president 
and sophomore in mathematics, 
shared ideas with Schmidt at Hall 
Governing Board meetings. 

"He's always in a great mood and 
happy to see you," Stucky said. "I 
don't know if it makes it any better of 
an experience because there's a guy 
living here, but I definitely don't see a

negative effect either." 

Schmidt became a familiar face as 
he assisted floor presidents with meet- 
ings, helped resi- 
dents in the 
lobby and an- 
swered questions 
about policies. 

"I think it 
(having Schmidt 
on staff) is really 
wonderful and 
definitely posi- 
tive. He works 
well with the 
staff," Wolford 
said. "He has a hand in everything 
that goes on here at Ford, and I think 
his presence is well-accepted." 

"I viewed it as an 
opportunity to work 
with people and get 
some experience. "

1 wo Haymaker, 
Ford, and West 
couples perform 
moves taught by 
dance instructor 
Bertra Manning 
at TW Long- 
horns. About 120 
residents of the 
three halls took 
part in country 
dance lessons on 
Tuesday nights. 
Manning said she 
didn't expect stu- 
dents to become 
excellent dancers 
during the seven- 
week course. "I 
want them to en- 
joy themselves, 
have a good time, 
and dance for 
fun," she said.

"I totally love it. I like 
to dance, and this gives 
me a chance to share it 
with other people, meet 
them and make lasting 
friendships. " 

Bertra Manning, 
dance instructor 

he lights dimmed. The dance floor 
shone. College students gathered in 
groups listening to country tunes. 
Several men and women were decked 
out in Wrangler jeans, western shirts 
and ropers, while others wore Guess 
jeans, rugbies and loafers. 

It was a typical Tuesday evening 
at TW Long- 
horn's and resi- 
dents of Ford 
and Haymaker 
halls were learn- 
ing to country 

Tina Thayer, 
resident assistant 
at Ford and se- 
nior in hotel and 
restaurant man- 
agement, said 
residents of 
ninth floor Ford 
and fourth floor 
Haymaker danced weekly at 

"I decided last year it would be a 
good function for our brother/sister 
floor because it was good interac- 
tion with each other," Thayer said. 

On the dance floor, Bertra Man- 
ning, dance instructor, demonstrated 
moves with her partner. Manning 
was in her third year of teaching 
lessons at Longhorn's. The classes 
lasted seven weeks, but Manning 
said most students stopped after the 
fourth week and did not continue 
with the advanced lessons. 

"I tell everyone they can't learn 
to become an excellent dancer in 
seven weeks," Manningsaid. "They 
will always remember how to do it 
but have to keep practicing it." 

Manning said she doesn't expect 
her students to be perfect. 

"If they learn three moves, that is 
an improvement to me," she said. "I 
want them to enjoy themselves, have 
a good rime and dance for fun." 

As many as 120 students prac- 
ticed dancing. Manning said by the 
end of the fourth week she was able 
to see improvement in the students' 
moves. She said their improvement 
depended on how serious they were 
about learning. 

"I have had more interest this 
year from students. I'm usually at 
Longhorn's by 7 (p.m.) to work 

by Lisa Staab 

privately and help students polish 
their moves," Manning said. "I tell 
anyone who wants to dance, re- 
gardless of their physical ability, I 
can teach them to dance. 

Throughout her 13 years of 
teaching, Manning said she enjoyed 
the lessons. 

"I totally love it. I like to dance, 
and this gives me a chance to share 
it with other people, meet them and 
make lasting friendships," she said. 
"It's a beneflt all around. I am a 
passionate person about dancing, so 
I love to teach them and watch them 

Heather Scraper, floor president 
and sophomore in elementary edu- 
cation, said the dance lessons were 
successful in bringing Ford and 
Haymaker residents together. 

"Overall, it was a positive expe- 
rience for everyone involved," 
Scraper said. "Even if the students 
didn't feel competent with their 
dancing ability, they met others. 
We fulfilled our goal as leaders of the 
floor by experiencing things we 
hadn't experienced before and had 
tun doing it."

Goodnow also sponsored an

with little angels displaying the 
names of children from 
Manhattan's Big Brothers/Big Sis-

chose an angel and bought gifts for 
the child they had picked. 

However, some residents said 
they weren't nice all year. There 
were naughty activities going on as 
well. For instance, Brad, who wanted 
to remain anonymous, said some 
residents had parties. 

"The best is when we closed off 
the floor and had a huge floor party. 
It was wild," he said. "People were 
bowling in the hallways and every 
room had different music blasting. It 
was a zoo."

Haymaker Hall 

im Alfano's routine life changed 
July 1 when she was appointed the 
first female hall director ofHaymaker 
Hall, an all-male residence hall. 

As a female director, Alfano said 
she wanted to change the stereotype 
that women were wimpy and not 
capable of dealing with 520 men. 

"It has been a challenge as hall 
director because I knew the stereo- 
type would be evident, but the resi- 
dents and staff 

"I believe this hall has 
respect for me as their 
director of the building. " 

Kim Alfano, 
Haymaker Hall director 

have been won- 
derful," Alfano 
said. "I don't feel 
like the stereo- 
types are there 
for me any- 

Alex Ruth, 
Haymaker Hall 
resident and se- 
nior in chemistry, said Alfano was an 
asset to Haymaker's staff and that the 
residents accepted her. 

"The reason she's overcome the 
stereotypes is that she's very outgo- 
ing," he said. "She cares about the 
staff and the residents, so the guys 
don't show any disrespect for her." 
Members of the Manhattan com- 
munity were more surprised by her 
position than people at the Univer- 
sity, Alfano said. 

"When I went to the grocery 
store and presented a check that said 

Haymaker Hall, people would ask, 
'Isn't that a male hall?' " she said. 
"Otherwise, I haven't experienced 
any discrimination, but I believe it is 
because of my own stubbornness. I 
believe this hall has respect for me as 
their director of the building." 

She wanted the job because she 
said the position was a professional 

Alex Delgadillo, residence life 
program coordinator, said Alfano 
was setting a new style in her posi- 

"Just because she's a woman 
should not hinder her position to 
serve as a role model," Delgadillo 
said. "She was such a strong candi- 
date that we felt we could put her 
anywhere and she would be suc- 
cessful. Her enthusiasm and spirit 
add even more to that position, and 
she has exceptional qualities. She 
brought a new spark to Haymaker 
Hall and enhanced their traditions." 

Alfano said she confronted sev- 
eral obstacles in her role. 

"Depending on the student, each 
crisis is different. As director, it's a 
challenge to meet their needs," 
Alfano said. "Some could be family 
problems or suicide problems, and I 
must deal with each individual stu- 

Alfano's first challenge was a fire 
in the ninth-floor lobby Sept. 29. 

by Lisa Staab 

"If anything good came out o! 
the incident, it made people more 
aware of the policies and regula 
tions," she said. "The fire marshai 
said there was only soot damage in 
the lobby." 

She developed her ability to con 
front various situations through pro 
fessional training. At Texas Tech 
University, she worked as a resident 
assistant and front desk assistant for 
two years. 

However, experience alone did 
not bring her to K-State. 

"The students attracted me to 
campus because they took owner- 
ship in me during the interviews 
They were concerned with their 
choices," she said. "Since arriving 
on campus, I've learned their cul- 
ture, traditions and the climate within 
Haymaker as well as Kansas." 

Alfano said money wasn't a fac- 
tor in her decision to come to K- 

"The reasons I'm here is the 
impact of being in the building and 
making contact with 520 guys," 
Alfano said. "I see them when they're 
happy, mad or sad. If this impact 
isn't important enough and if I'm 
not here for student development, 
then money would be a problem. I 
just love being around these guys 
because they give a 100 percent to 
everything they do." 

Haymaker Hall director Kim 
Alfano reviews some paperwork 
before winter break. Alfano said at 
the end of each semester was when 
the most paperwork occured because 
students were checking out and 
moving around. Alfano was the first 
woman director of the all-male 
residence hall. (Photo by Shane

strong intramural program, academic 
assistance and a wide variety of social 
opportunities were available to 
Marlatt Hall residents. 

Dave Yoder, director of Marlatt, 
said the hall always finished among 
the highest-scoring residence halls 
in intramural competitions. 

"It (intramural sports) is some- 
thing everyone enjoys," Yoder said. 

Quentin Guhr. Marlatt resident 
and senior in electrical engineering, 
said that although Marlatt was a 
serious competitor, the participants' 
main goal was to have fun. 

"We try to keep it (intramural 
competitions) fun," Guhr said. 

Residents didn't have to com- 
pete in intramural games to meet 
others. Marlatt sponsored activities 

that brought residents closer to-

David Gast, president of Marlatt

ing, said events such as Yak Fest, a

Marlatt also had movie nights,

nights that provided students a 
chance to get to know each other, 
Yoder said. 

Despite all the extracurricular

"Studying is a big priority at 
Marlatt," Yoder said. "It's just the 
right mix (offun and studying) here." 

When it 
came to studies, 
Marlatt residents 
did not have to 
go far to find 
help. Since most 
of the residents 
were engineer- 
ingstudents, they 
helped each 
other out in their 
classes, Gast said. 

"There is al- 
ways someone in 
one of your classes who you can get 
help from, and people come to you

ore than 20 residents of Moore Hall 
unexpectedly became victims of a 
prank. During October, anonymous 
pranksters called the residents and 
said they had packages waiting for 
them at the front desk. 

Erin Malcom-Gross, freshman 
in hotel and restaurant management, 
was one of the victims. 

"They just called and said, 'This 
is the front desk,' " she said. "They 
told me I had a package. I think 
everybody on our floor got the same 

Jerret Perrin, freshman in animal 
sciences and industry, was also told 
he had a package. 

"I didn't know what the heck 
was going on," Perrin said. "I went 
back upstairs, and everyone was sit- 
ting in the lobby laughing." 

Perrin said once he discovered 
who the culprits were, he joined 
them in calling other unsuspecting 

"Pretty soon everyone got into it 
(the prank), and it got pretty big 
after a little while," he said. "I think 
they (receptionists) were getting kind 
of frustrated after 20 people came 
down asking for packages." 

It was no joke when 30 residents 
were selected to attend Dinner on 
the Mayflower, Nov. 18. 

The dinner was part of a food 
drive benefiting the Flint Hills Bread- 
basket. Students entered their names 
in a drawing for every two cans they 
donated. Fifteen names were drawn 
to attend the dinner, and each win- 
ner invited a guest. 

"On Nov. 18 we took the win- 

by Terry Scruton and Shannon Yust 

ners out in back of Derby (Food 
Center)," said Andy Fink, director 
of Moore Hall. "There we had a 
decorated Mayflower moving truck 
in which they ate refreshments. Then 
we took them into the Gold Room 
for dinner."

or residents ofPutnam Hall, support 
packages were not just a serious 
matter, but a business matter. 

In order to make money, Putnam 
residents sold 
the support 
packages, which 
consisted of a 
bucket contain- 
ing snack food, 
and delivered 
them to students 
at the beginning 
of finals week. 

"The sup- 
port packages 
are used as a 
fundraiser for 
the hall," said 
Gretchen Kirch- 
hofer, sophomore in history. "We 
sell these packages to the whole 

Angie Hunsucker, 
freshmen in animal 
sciences and industry 


The company who made the 
packages contacted students' par- 
ents, but after this first step, the 
student volunteers took over. 

"The parents send everything 
back to Putnam, ' ' said Brandi Fischer, 
sophomore in civil engineering. 
"We organize the information here. 
The money comes to us, and we put 
the support packages together." 

Student volunteers were needed 
to distribute the packages, said Scott 
Egbert, president of Putnam and 
senior in marketing. 

"We have two or three volun- 
teers who do all of the bookkeeping, 
and other volunteers help put the 
packages together during two work 
nights," Egbert said. 

Student participation was neces- 
sary for the operation to be success-

fill. Kirchhofer said the volunteers 
became involved because the pro- 
gram helped other students. 

"The main purpose (of the 
fundraiser) is to provide a service to 
the students," Kirchhofer said. "The 
parents wanted them to know they 
were thinking about them." 

Many students who were sur- 
prised to receive a package appreci- 
ated the efforts of Putnam volun- 
teers and their parents. 

"Through all the stress caused by 
finals, it's nice to know that my 
parents still care for and believe in 
me," said Angie Hunsucker, fresh- 
man in animal sciences and industry. 

A total of 200-300 packages were 
distributed to students during the 
fall semester finals week, Egbert said. 

"The support packages are what 
Putnam Hall is known for," he said.

Smith Scholarship House 




"We may have the 
highest collective GPA of 
any living organization 
atK-State, but we do 
more than just study " 

Marvin Schlatter, 
sophomore in agribusiness 

erm papers, class projects and late- 
night cramming kept the students at 
Smith Scholarship House busy, but 
studying was just one activity the 
residents participated in. 

Marvin Schlatter, sophomore in 
agribusiness, said 
many people 
had misconcep- 
tions about 
Smith. Resi- 
dents not only 
succeeded in 
academics but in 
other areas as 
well, he said. 

"The house 

is probably more 


than people 

think, socially 

and culturally. The interests people 

in the house have differ quite a lot 

and provide a good diversity," 

Schlatter said. "Smith is more than 
just a scholarship house. We may 
have the highest collective GPA of 
any living organization at K-State, 
but we do more than just study." 

Fundraisers, pranks and parties 
were as common as preparing for 
tests, said Mark Berger, house presi- 
dent and junior in mathematics. He 
said the house sponsored an Around 
the World party to introduce people 
to other cultures. 

"It's a house social event that 
involves all the rooms," Berger said. 
"Every room is a country or an area. 
To express cultural diversity, we 
have music, costumes, food and 
drinks that represent that country." 

David Blood, junior in account- 
ing, said many of the parties involved 
their sister house, Smurthwaite 
House. Residents in the two houses 
maintained good relationships that 
included pranks, he said. 

by Tawnya Ernst 

"We loaded Smurthwaite's front 
porch with sandbags in retaliation 
for a week's worth of their pranks," 
Blood said. "They came over and 
serenaded us in the middle of the 
night, about 2 a.m. We turned the 
hose on them. It was great." 

A more serious problem the resi- 
dents faced was the need for im- 
provements to the house, Blood 
said. To raise money, the residents 
completed yard work, stuffed ad- 
vertisements in Collegians, painted 
a house and helped a family move. 

The money raised combined 
with alumni donations was enough 
to make some improvements, Blood 

"We put in new fluorescent lights 
and ceiling tile, as well as an air 
conditioner in the dining area. That's 
pretty important to us," he said. 
"We got a new TV and VCR 
through fundraisers, too."

murder mystery provided a chal- 
lenge to Smurthwaite House resi- 
dents. They tried to solve the crime 
at a Murder Mystery Party with 
their brother house, Smith Scholar- 
ship House. 

However, the mystery party 
wasn't the only fun activity 
Smurthwaite residents participated 
in. Pranks, such as putting Kool-aid 
in shower heads and decorating cars 
with Oreo cookies, caught many 
residents off guard. 

The members balanced fun with 
their responsibilities. They had to 
maintain a 3.0 GPA grade point 
average and take turns cooking and 
cleaning. Each member was also re- 
quired to participate on a committee 
and create a program for the house. 

"Strong friendships are created 
(in the house), and you're part of a 
working team, " said April Behrendt, 

Smurthwaite president and sopho- 
more in chemical engineering. 

One person who created a fresh 
outlook for Smurthwaite was Amy 
Goi, the new hall director and gradu- 
ate student in student counseling/ 
personal services. Besides getting 
Smurthwaite members more in- 
volved on campus, she's also helped 
make it more recognizable, Behrendt 

"You can tell she wants to be 
here and make Smurthwaite a better 
place," said Lei Fritz, junior in mod- 
ern languages. "She's a real go- 
getter and gets things done. She 
points out your positive points and 
tells you how it is." 

Newcomers to Smurthwaite were 
selected through an application pro- 
cess and found the living group ben- 
eficial to them in various ways. 

"I was really surprised at how 

by Michele Schroeder 

open the place was. It was more than 
just a place to live," said Kim 
Murphy, Smurthwaite resident and 
freshman in environmental design. 
"It's an experi- 
ence of growing 
with people, and 
with college be- 
ing new to me, 
it helped to have 
that home envi- 

It's a big in- 
centive to do 
better in school 
when you're 
around moti- 
vated people, she said. 

"I feel myself wanting to do 
better," Murphy said. "If I see oth- 
ers staying up late studying every 
night, I know I can study just as late 
as them if I need to." 

"I was really surprised 
at how open the place 
was. It was more than 
just a place to live. "

Although the workers said they

problems arose. 

"One time I was working, and 
some guy got thrown through a 
window. Another time a skunk tried 
to get in the building," Klingele 
said. "Sometimes it can get pretty 
exciting here." 

The main drawback to being a 
receptionist was dead shifts, which 
were shifts during late night and 
early morning hours, said Mark 
Hoover, sophomore in business ad- 

"Sometimes I have trouble stay- 
ing awake, so it's better to work in 
Van Zile because there is more 
going on," he said. "The good 
thing is it is very convenient be- 
cause you don't have to walk all

est Hall helped develop leaders. 

Students Programming for Stu- 
dents, a new program exclusive to 
West, formed to give residents the 
opportunity to develop leadership 
qualities, said Michelle Black, direc- 
tor of West. 

SPS had five committees: physi- 
cal, diversity, intellectual, values and 
community, and life planning. The 
committee members were advised 
by West staff members. 

Black said each committee tried 
to plan two programs per semester. 
This allowed incoming freshmen to 
get involved, she said. 

"It's (Students Programming 
for Students) an opportunity to 
get a taste of what it's like to be a 
leader and give something back 
to the women they're living 
with," she said. 

SPS helped educate residents by 
promoting alcohol awareness. 

"We got one of our staff as drunk 
as possible, (to the point of being)

about alcohol poisoning as well as 
providing other statistics about al-

Another program sponsored by 
SPS was a spiritual fair that had 12 
campus religious organizations visit 
the hall to promote their clubs. 

"The religious fair was like an 
open house," Black said. "The 
groups were in our lobby so resi-

1 6 a.m. I woke up, took a shower, decided what I was going to wear 
and did my hair. After I finished getting ready, I walked 
to campus, which took about five minutes. 
7:30 a.m. I had Intermediate Algebra in Cardwell Hall. 
8:30 p.m. After class, I took a break and went to the Union to eat 
breakfast with some friends. We caught up on old times 
and talked about the upcoming semester. Usually at 
this time I go to the library to study on the fourth floor 
for my next class or an assignment I just received. 

9:20 a.m. Iwenttomy Wealth, Power and Privilege class. I really 
enjoyed this class, which had good discussion through- 
out the hour, and the social issues were interesting. 

10:30 a.m. I attended my Basic Nutrition class. I need to learn more 
about nutrition, so I will definitely enjoy this class. 

11:30 a.m. I walked to my African American History class. I'm 
African American, and I believe you can never learn too 
much about yourself When you learn about your past, 
you can only have a better future. 

12:30 p.m. Today I went back to the Union to eat lunch with 
some friends. I usually go to the library to study, and 
eating lunch at the Union won't become a habit. 

1:30 p.m. I sat through my Spanish I class. Since it is a given that 
Spanish is becoming the second language in America, 
I think this class will help me. I see it (Spanish) as a 
challenge. Why learn a language if you're not going to 
speak it? Either you face the challenge, or you will let 
yourself be defeated. 

2:30 p.m. After class, I went home to relax and watch the "Ricki 
Lake Show," which is one of my favorite talk shows. I 
like looking at controversial issues we face in America. 
4 p.m. I went back to the library to study. It is difficult for me 
to study at home because I'll talk on the phone, or there 
is always the potential for unexpected company. 
7 p.m. I usually have "United by Voices" choir practice in 
Forum Hall. I don't have an exact time when I usually 
eat dinner. Today I went home, made my phone calls, 
read my Bible and prepared for the next day. 
11 D.m. I went to bed.

crawled out ofbed at 9 a.m. to once again work on my "Johnson's War 
on Poverty" book review for my Rhetoric of the American Presidency 
class. Because the paper was due today, I was really pressed for rime. 

9:15 a.m. Hi ho, hi ho, off to hell I'll go ... To some students, 

Seaton flail was hell. 
10:30 a.m. I skipped Psychobiology. Knowing my luck, we prob- 
ably had a quiz. I was still working on the computer. 
12:25 p.m. I was Persuasion-bound. At least I had my Persuasion 
professor to look forward to. Bill Schenck-Hamlin, 
professor of speech, was a funny guy. 
1:20 p.m. Back to Seaton Hall.. 

2:25 p.m. Still not done with this @#$% paper, but oh well, I had 
until 5:00 p.m. I still had to attend RJietoric of the 
American Presidency in Nichols Hall. 
3:20 p.m. Out of Nichols Hall and back to Seaton. 
4:25 p.m. The paper was finished! I skimmed and spell checked it. 
4:50 p.m. The paper was finally printed. The printers really 
sucked. No, I should take that back. The printers were 
just fine. Papers sucked! 
4:55 p.m. I quickly read the paper for errors in the Department of 
Speech's main office. Whew, I turned it in just in time. 
That was close. 
5:15 p.m. It was time to eat at Derby Food Center. 

6 p.m. I hung out and watched television with my friend Brock 

Landwehr, freshman in psychology. He was one of my 

three closest friends here at K-State. I spent a lot of time 

in his room hanging out and talking to stupid characters 

on the TV screen. I had the most fun talking to the hot 

women. Brock thought I was weird at times. 

6:30 p.m. On my way to a group campaign meeting. What a day. 

8 p.m. The meeting went well, but I still wanted to formulate 

some last-minute campaign public appeals. However, I 

thought I would spend a little time hanging out with 

Brent Malin, senior in English. Brent was my best 

friend. I'd known him for three years. 

9:30 p.m. Time to work on my Psychobiology paper. Man, I was 

really sick of papers. 
10:45 p.m. I needed to go to Brock's room because this paper really 

11:30 p.m. I listened to Pearl Jam and tried to think of at least three 
good appeals for the group campaign paper that was due 
11:45 p.m. I decided to postpone my work for the campaign paper 

until tomorrow morning, so I took a shower. 
12:30 a.m. I listened to Pearl Jam while waiting for my hair to dry. 
1:30 a.m. Time for bed. "Tomorrow brings another day," as my 
father would say. At least I was getting to bed before 3 
a.m., which was unusual for me.

woke up at 7 a.m. to start the day, took a shower, got ready for class, 
ate breakfast, read the paper and visited with the 
housemom before I went to class. 

8:20 a.m. I took a brisk walk to General Organic Chemistry to sit 
through another lecture. I took a few notes to get 
prepared for the upcoming final. 

9:20 a.m. After class was finished, a couple of my friends and I 
headed to our next class. We just had a short visit since 
I went to Technical Calculus in Cardwell Hall. We 
worked calculus problems and reviewed for the final. I 
knew I was going to have to study a lot for that class. 
10:20 a.m. I headed to Weber Hall where I had my Microcom- 
puter class. We mainly asked questions and took notes 
during the review session. 
11:20 a.m. Since my adviser's office was in Weber, I stopped by to 

see him and picked up a letter of recommendation. 
11:30 a.m. I headed home to eat lunch between classes. Lunch time 
was especially fun, as I got to visit with the house boys 
and the girls eating. This time was usually allotted for 
storytelling of all types. I contributed when I could. 
After lunch I regrouped and looked at material for my 
afternoon classes, brushed my teeth and read my mail. 
I headed back to campus for my Dairy Science class at 
Call Hall. We sampled different types of cheeses. 
Dairy Science was a two-hour class, but we got out 
early. I went to Weber's student lounge to read for my 
next class and visit with Wednesday lounge regulars. 
My last class for the day was Animal Science Lab, 
another two-hour course. We got back our test scores 
from the last test and were lectured on horse selection. 
Class got out early, so I headed home to study and got 
ready for formal dinner. During this time, I also un- 
packed my books and tried to straighten up my part of 
the room. I had five other roommates, so I always had 
someone to visit with in my room. 

5:30 p.m. Formal dinner was served. During dinner, we had a 
candlelighring for a member who recently got engaged. 

7:15 p.m. After dinner, I went to a review session. I usually 
attended chapter, but I needed to go to class instead. 
9 p.m. I made it back to the house in time for part of chapter. 
After the meeting, three girls and I went out for yogurt. 

10 p.m. After getting back to the house, it was time to return 

phone calls and to call some of my friends. This was a 
night I visited too much on the phone. 

11 p.m. It was late, so I studied for a quiz I had the next day in 

one of my classes. However, I was easily distracted 
because it was so convenient to stop and chat with 
whomever walked by. Some of the best conversations 
took place at this time of the night, so I hated to miss out. 

12 a.m. I finally had enough studying accomplished for the day, 

so I went to bed with the intention of waking up 30 
minutes early to review before my quiz. 
12:30 a.m. End of the day or beginning of the next, however you 
wanted to look at it.

t 8 o'clock, I was awakened by my roommate, Ryan Loriaux, 
junior in accounting, getting ready to go work. Now 8 
a.m. was usually not a big deal, but last night our house 
went Christmas caroling to all the sororities. Whether 
by choice or by force, I was made to partake of the 
festive drink. Big mistake. 
8:15 a.m. I could tell it was going to be a long day. I took a couple 
of Advil and climbed back onto the couch. Luckily, I 
only had Organismic Biology at 1 0:30 a.m. and Human 
Body at 11:30 a.m. 
12 p.m. The next thing I knew, the phone was ringing, and the 
room was spinning. I was looking Lady Death in the 
face, and she was a lot prettier than I was. My roommate 
mockingly gave me a wake-up call. Good thing I didn't 
have any tests or papers due today because common 
sense said I wasn't making it to class. 
12:15 p.m. Now that I was up and thinking, there was no going 
back to sleep. While I was taking a shower, I got the 
Coast soap commercial in my head. You know, the one 
where they sing that little song about how Coast lather 
opens your eyes, or something like that. I finished doing 
my hair, got dressed and headed downstairs to nourish 
my body with some solid foods. 

1 p.m. As soon as I entered the kitchen, our cook, Gertie, asked 

why I wasn't in class. Gertie knew I had class at this time 
because she packed a lunch for me every day. Eventu- 
ally, the conversation turned ugly. She started asking me 
about my love life . . . Whoa horsey, that didn't go over 
too well. I kept trying to tell her that I was a single man, 
and that I had no time for females. Basically, she was 
turning me the color of an overcooked lobster. 

2 p.m. By now, I had accomplished nothing and found myself 

down the hall from my room watching "Indecent 
Proposal," my favorite movie — not. 

3:30 p.m. I got a phone call from Kim Wishart, junior in journal- 
ism and mass communications. I told her a brother and 
I were going to the Aggie Lounge to drink beer. 
4 p.m. Ryan and I were chatting when several freshmen came 
to our door. They wanted to know if we had any of the 
intimates that had mysteriously disappeared from the 
Alpha Chi house last night during a panty raid. Man, did 
I laugh about that one. Ryan and I were still chuckling 
about it when Kenny Conklin, sophomore in biology, 
came in and asked if I was ready to go play darts. 

8:30 p.m. Kenny and I spent a lot of money at the Lou, and then 
I realized it was time for me to go take party pics for 
University Photography. I've had the job for more than 
two years, and it did little more than keep change in my 
pockets. Tonight I shot the Alpha Gamma Rho Christ- 
mas Semi-formal. 
11:30 p.m. When I got home, I called Kim to see what was up. I 

convinced her to come over. 
12:15 a.m. Kimshowed up. She and I talked for a couple hours, and 
then she took off. Ryan was in bed but not asleep. He 
asked if I wanted to play racquetball tomorrow before 
the Chiefs game. 

2:30 a.m. I went to bed.

woke up and prepared for my shower. 

7 a.m. I reviewed for a test in Crop Science. This test was going 
to determine ifl received an A in the class and whether 
or not I would have to take the final. I felt as prepared 
as possible. 

7:30 a.m. I began to fix my hair and face. I ate cereal for breakfast. 

8:15 a.m. I left for class. 

8:30 a.m. I had my Crop Science test. It was harder than I 
expected, but I did well on it. 

9:30 a.m. I had Introduction to Social and Political Philosophy. I 
didn't know why I was in this class. When I was reading 
through the description of classes, it sounded interest- 
ing. It was on a higher level, so in the class I felt like I 
couldn't participate. I felt intimidated, dumb and infe- 
rior to others. It wasn't so much the material as the 
10:30 a.m. I spent time in the K-State Union reading the Collegian 
and watching obnoxious people. There were always 
people screaming and yelling at one another, and they 
were entertaining. 
11:30 a.m. I had Agricultural Economics, which I thought was the 
most boring class on campus. The teacher was boring, 
so I had a hard time learning. 
12:30 p.m. I had Calculus I, which meant spending time listening 
to a squeaky-voiced woman. She was hard to under- 
stand, and it was hard to learn. This was my hardest class. 

1:30 p.m. I finally got to have lunch. I walked home and prepared 
some kind of pasta and watched the last half hour of 
"Days of Our Lives." 

2:20 p.m. It was time to go to my calculus tutor. I never got 
anything out of our meetings. I've had the tutor since 
the second week of classes, but there have been only 
two times I've learned something. We worked on 
assignments. I hated calculus. It was hard to ask ques- 
tions about things you don't understand. 

3:30 p.m. I returned home and changed for a Tri-Delt chapter 
meeting. Tonight was our Christmas party, so I had to 
run out and finish getting gifts. 
5 p.m. I left to go to the sorority house. We had dinner and a 
pledge meeting. I took minutes and roll call because I'm 
vice president. Afterward, we exchanged gifts. 
9 p.m. I finally had a chance to sit down and relax. I didn't feel 
like doing any homework tonight. I read a book, "Bless 
This Child," and then went to bed. I decided I'djust do 
my homework the next day.

got out ofbed at 6:01 a.m. Late-night studying caused me to oversleep, 
which was nothing new. 

6:55 a.m. Made bed, did dishes, grabbed breakfast, fed the dog 
(Barney), packed my books, fed the cats (Hank and 
Simon) and kissed my husband, Lou, goodbye. 

7:05 a.m. My car pool (Denise Monell, junior in engineering) 
showed up. I was in a rush and forgot my coat on a 
freezing, cold day. We had to go back to get it. 
Arrived in Manhattan. Found a parking space. Settled 
down in the Union to study. I was not going to work 
because I had to study for a quiz. 
Friends sat nearby, and I gabbed with them instead of 

Dropped off my bag in my locker upstairs in Kedzie 
Hall. Otherwise, I had to carry the monster everywhere. 
Sat in Kedzie library to study for a test. A friend sat down, 
and we talked. 

I called a friend (Lisa Staab, senior in secondary educa- 
tion) and arranged to meet her by the copy center in the 
Union. We had lunch and caught up. I hardly ever see 
anyone because I'm at work. This was an unusual day 
for me. 

I headed to Ackert Hall for my test. It was actually a quiz. 
I got an 88 percent, 22 out of 25. The class was long and 
boring. It was a lab, the last one of the semester. 
Back to Kedzie. I retrieved my backpack and sat in 
Kedzie Library. I was waiting for an open lab class in 
Editing and Design I. I should have completed my 
project today, so I didn't have to stay or drive in on a 
Friday or Sunday. Those were the only other times I 
could get into the Kedzie lab. 
Attended my Botany Lab class. 
I was late for a meeting. I left class and walked to 
Bluemont Hall. 

I left campus after the Golden Key National Honor 
Society officers meeting. 

Returned home. My husband had dinner waiting for

and 1:30. 
8 a.m. I finally rolled out of bed to take a shower. 

Every time I went into the bathroom, I couldn't believe 
how small it was. Two people were too many to fit. 
However, living in Jardine was not as bad as one might 
hear from the grapevine. We really liked being close to 
the football stadium, so we could walk over for games 
and avoid the traffic. Also, the trash, water and gas were 
included in the rent, which was really low. All we had 
to pay for was the phone and cable. If anything went 
wrong in the apartment, we called maintenance. They 
usually came quickly. 
1 1 a.m. I came home from my class. I was so glad this was the 
last Thursday of classes. I did last night's dishes, made the 
bed and picked up the house before going to work at 
Varney's Book Store. 

2:30 p.m. Wes went home to eat lunch and change clothes before 
going to work at a farm outside of town. 

4:30 p.m. Wes came home from work and had a catnap. 

5:30 p.m. I came home from work. I freshened up and sat down 
to relax. 
7 p.m. We had a visit from our neighbors downstairs. They 
came up to tell us we were too noisy. The floors were 
thin, and we didn't have carpet in the apartment, so our 
chairs squeaked on the floor. They told us they liked to 
go to bed at 10:30 p.m., and that it was hard when there 
was noise. I informed them that we were both full-time 
students and stayed up late. I was upset after they left, but 
Wes told me not to worry about it and just go on with 

7:10 p.m. We decided to go see a friend at Red Bud trailer park. 

8:30 p.m. We went to Dairy Queen to eat. 

In our apartment, the kitchen didn't have much counter 
space, but there was a lot of cabinet space. People always 
heard that Jardine had bugs, but we didn't have any. 

8:50 p.m. We came home to the complex, which the housing 
department tried to promote as a little community 
within a community. It really wasn't a bad place to live, 
and we met some really nice people of all ages. 
Wes started drawing on a project that was due the next 
day, and I watched television. 

9 p.m. I called my mom to tell her we were coming home to 

watch Rich (my brother) wrestle Saturday. 

10 p.m. I went to bed, and Wes was still drawing. He often 

stayed up to draw, especially the night before a project 
was due. He came to bed at 11:30 p.m.

I got up, took a shower and put in my contacts. I dried 
my hair and got dressed. 

I ate breakfast. I usually see my brother and father at this 
time. My mother had already left for work. You would 
think that living at home would mean I saw my family 
a lot. I really don't. Everyone is so busy that our paths 
don't cross. I could go for two days and only see my 
mother for 1 5 minutes. 

I got my stufftogether for school and prepared to leave. 
I left the house to pick up my fiance, Ron Lackey, 
sophomore in art, and we went to campus. 
After I dropped Ron off, I went to Cardwell Hall, 
where my 9:30 class is, and read the Collegian and 
worked on the crossword puzzle. 
I went to the first session of my class, Teachers in a 
Multicultural Society. This was a two-hour class 
where we (education students) discussed basic things 
to do to prepare for student teaching, such as questions 
we should ask when we first meet our teacher. It 
should be an interesting class with information which 
is pretty useful. The three-week class only meets once 
a week. 

, I went over to the library and waited until my fiance was 
done with his class. 

, After he (Ron) was done, we went over to some 
friends' (Tricia Allen, junior in art, and her husband 
Chuck, senior in journalism and mass communications) 
house for an hour. 

We left and went to Mr. Goodcents to take some food 
back to his place. We spent the rest of the time watching 
television and hanging out. When I was at home, I 
usually went out or studied elsewhere until my family 
tried to get together for dinner every day at 5:30 p.m. 
Most of the time it wasn't possible because I usually had 
to work or attend a meeting. My brother (Tom, 
sophomore in computer science) was also a K-State 
student, and his schedule sometimes prevented a family 

I left to go home to get ready for work. I took a shower 
and tried to figure out what I was going to wear. 
I left for work so I could be there by 5 p.m. I work at 
Braun's Fashions in the Manhattan Town Center, 
where I'm basically a sales clerk. It's a pretty good job. 
I've worked there longer than anyone on staff, five 
years. Sometimes it makes things difficult because I 
know things that the manager doesn't know. The store 
has lots of regulars, and I have met a lot of nice people. 
, The store closed, and then we (staff) had things to do like 
cleaning up. I had to close the register and do some 
. After work, we (Lackey and Peterson) went back over 
to the Allen's house. We watched the movie, "Un- 
tamed Heart," and we were there until about 11:30 
p.m. Then, I dropped my fiance off at his house and 
went home.

"Its (displaying the

message out to your

Barrett Brooks, 
senior offensive tackle 

he Wildcat football team went into 
halftime trailing the University of 
Nevada-Las Vegas Running Rebels, 
10-14. The game turned around 
after an electrifying 67 -yard touch- 
down reception 
by senior wide 
receiver Andre 

After the 
catch, Coleman 
threw his arms 
above his head 
in the shape of 
the greek letter 
"psi" to salute 
his fraternity, 
Omega Psi Phi. 

Senior offensive tackle Barrett 
Brooks said Omega Psi Phi mem- 
bers displayed the sign when they 
got excited about something, 
whether it was at a game or a

After scoring 
against the Uni- 
versity ofNevada-

Coleman, senior 
wide receiver, 
forms the shape of 
the greek letter 
"psi," the symbol 
of his fraternity, 
Omega Psi Phi.

like sending a message out to your 
brothers," Brooks said. "It's like 
letting them know you're thinking 
about them when you do some- 
thing good." 

Coleman said he did it to com- 
municate with his fraternity 

"I do it because I know a lot of 
my fraternity brothers are in the 
stands, and it's my way of talking to 
them," he said. 

Floyd Brooks, senior in civil en- 
gineering, said when the football 
players acted out the sign, it showed 
how happy they were, and that 
made him happy. 

Not only did members use the 
sign, they also barked to communi- 
cate because the fraternity's mascot 
was a dog. Coleman said it was a 
personal way for members to ex- 
press themselves to each other. 

Other people who had seen the 
sign imitated it, but Coleman and 

byjenni Stiverson 

Barrett said it was disrespectful. 

"A lot of people do it (bark) and 
throw up the sign because they 
think it's cool," Coleman said. "We 
don't like people doing it because 
it's sacred. People don't know that, 

The use of the symbol and call 
were used nationally. Stars such as 
Michaeljordan were known to flash 
a "psi" sign occasionally, Coleman 
said. Once members gained a lot of 
fame, they didn't do it as much, he 

"They have to keep it in per- 
spective," Coleman said. "If people 
see Michael Jordan doing it all the 
time, they might start doing it." 

The sign and bark were a symbol 
of the bond and the support between 
fraternity brothers, Barrett said. 

"It gives you a feeling that's hard 
to explain, like being in a Super 
Bowl," he said. "It's an adrenaline 
rush — the ultimate high."

he women of Delta Sigma Theta 
sorority and the men of Alpha Phi 
Alpha fraternity served as mentors 
for Manhattan high school and 
middle school students. 

After being matched with stu- 
dents from the high school, the 
Delta Sigma Thetas spent two to 
five hours a week assisting their 

"As a sorority, we wanted to 
curb or prevent some things that 
happen to young students in the 
community," said Monrovia Scott, 
Delta Sigma Theta president and 
senior in industrial engineering. "We 
discussed issues and helped the girls 
with homework or whatever prob- 
lems they needed help with." 

Being a friend to the students was 
a main goal of the mentoring pro- 
gram. The students were often in- 
vited to the homes of the Delta 
Sigma Thetas or attended college 
activities with them. The mentors 
discussed issues with the girls in- 
cluding teen-age pregnancy, drugs 
and guns. 

"We wanted to introduce these 

young women to college life so they 
would have a smoother transition 
between the two when they start 
college," Scott said. 

Once a month, the Delta Sigma 
Thetas took the girls out in a 
group setting. For their initial 
meeting, they went to a winter 
dance. Other time spent with the 
girls depended on both of the 
partners' schedules. 

Members of Alpha Phi Alpha 
fraternity had a similar program that 
targeted males 11-13 years old. 

"We modeled the program after 
a similar Upward Bound program," 
said Jayson Strickland, senior in el- 
ementary education. 

At least five members of his fra- 
ternity went to the middle school 
each week to help about 1 5 students 
in a study hall setting, said Derrick 
Hardin, Alpha Phi Alpha president 
and junior in sociology. 

"The number of students at- 
tending the weekly mentor pro- 
gram varied due to their activities," 
Hardin said, "but each student came 
to the study hall once or twice a month. " 

The Alpha Phi Alpha members 
spent an hour a week in the school 
environment. They also took the 
boys on occasional field trips, out to 
dinner and par- 
ticipated in ath- 
letic and cultural 

"One time 
we took the guys 
to the Union, 
Complex and 
out for pizza," 
Hardin said. "I 
think everyone 
had a good 

The frater- 
nity members 
participated in 
the program be- 
cause it was ben- 
eficial to the community, Strickland 

"We wanted to start some kind 
of community service project that 
we thought would make a differ- 
ence," Strickland said.

moms heard at

"It's just like 
being a mom," 
said Bobbie 
Lonker, Beta 
Theta Pi house- 
mom. "I sew 
buttons, iron, 
mend and run 
them to school 
when needed." 
Housemoms played an impor- 
tant role in the greek houses. They 
kept the budget, paid the bills, taught 
social and table manners, planned 
the meals and maintained the house. 
They were not there for disciplinary 
problems, which were dealt with by 
members. Rather, they taught by 

"In some small ways, I think 
there is a need for an adult," said 
Gretchen King, Lambda Chi Alpha 
housemom. "The feeling that you 
are putting your time into being 
needed is a great reward." 

Students lived in the houses for 
nine months out of the year, and a 
main goal for each housemom was 
making members feel at home. To 
show support for their houses, moms 
attended the members' intramural 
games, plays and musicals. 

"I want to be as involved as they 
want me to be, " said Virginia Mitchel, 
Kappa Kappa Gamma housemom. 
Lonker went to all the Betas' intra- 
mural games and to individual games 
when she was asked. She said it was like 
being a mother to 50-70 people. 

"They (the members) are your 
family," said Martha Reynard, Pi 
Beta Phi housemom. "I'm proud of 
each and every one." 

Intramural games weren't the 
only events housemoms attended. 
They also attended K-State football 
and basketball games with other 

by Kristin Bu 
housemoms. Many times they 
pooled to meetings, plays and c 
events. They met once a montl 
breakfast to talk about what 
going on in their houses anc 
compare notes. 

"We grow together and help 
one another," Lonker said. "We 
a special group. There are sc 
really neat ladies here." 

Every afternoon at 3 p.m. gro 
gathered to chat over coffee. Tw 
a month they played cards. Ti 
also attended bridal showers, Chi 
mas parties and ate dinners toget

As they watched members grc 
the housemoms said they grew 
love the personal rewards they 
ceived from their job. At the end 
the day, housemoms were left wi 
"Goodnight, Mom." 
"See you later, Mom."

wo intoxicated members of Acacia 
were subjected to a breathalyzer test 
Nov. 10. Both failed the test but 
weren't arrested because they were 
participants in a presentation pro- 
moting awareness about drunken 

"Mark drank 12 beers, and I 
drank six," said Lawrence Andre, 
junior in industrial engineering. 
"We took breathalyzer tests to 
show our blood-alcohol level. It 
proved a person can be drunk with- 
out acting like it." 

The presentation covered all as- 
pects of drunken driving. 

"A police officer gave a speech 
about past experiences with drunken 

drivers," Andre said. "The officer 
warned us about the legal conse- 
quences of driving drunk." 

Acacia members were required 
to attend the presentation. 

"A lot of the guys didn't know 
what a police officer could or 
couldn't do when they pulled you 
over," said Kurt Guth, sophomore 
in business administration. 

Andre said the presentation was 

"It awoke individuals to the se- 
rious repercussions of driving 
drunk," Andre said. "It was a re- 
minder that serious things happen." 

The presentation was only part 
of Acacia members' fight against

drunken driving. They also had a 
yearlong program preventing mem- 
bers from driving drunk. 
"People are 

on call to give 
rides to and from 
the bars Thurs- 
day, Friday and 
Saturday nights," 
Andre said. "This 
way guys aren't

was worthwhile. 

"Everyone that goes out uses it,"

tudents and teachers traded roles. 

Members of Alpha Chi Omega 
sorority instructed their teachers Oct. 
6 on the correct way to pass rolls, 
which fork to use and the appropri- 
ate time to eat dessert. 

To recognize their favorite pro- 
fessors, the Alpha Chis sponsored 
their first Favorite Faculty Dinner. 
The guest list included 10 faculty 
members who were invited by so- 
rority members. The students se- 
lected professors who had positively 
influenced them in the classroom. 

Michele Harding, sophomore in 
elementary education, invited Steve 
White, professor of geography. 

"I learned a lot in his class," 
Harding said. "I felt like he really 
enjoyed his class and cared about his 

Some students extended invita- 
tions to put the teachers and stu- 
dents on more personal levels. 

Jennifer Taylor, sophomore in 
journalism and mass communica- 
tions, said she thought it would be 
fun to see Thaddeus Cowan, pro- 
fessor of psychology, out of the 

"I wanted to let him (Cowan) 
know that I'm a person and not just 
a number," Taylor said. "I also 
wanted him to know that I do care 
about my grades." 

The idea of having a faculty 
dinner was introduced by Kim Fox, 
scholarship chairman and junior in 
pre-veterinary medicine. Fox said 
she wanted to give academics a 
more positive image. 

"I think we respect the teachers 
a little bit more," she said. "It was 
good to be on the same level as the 
teachers and get them on our 

Each faculty member was intro- 
duced during formal dinner and 

by Kimberly Wishart 

awarded a certificate stating they 
were nominated as one of Alpha 
Chis' favorite faculty. 

"I think the professors really ap- 
preciated the dinner because I re- 
ceived a lot of thank you's," Fox 

Because the 
members view- 
ed the dinner as 
a success, the 
Alpha Chis 
planned to 
make it an an- 
nual event. 

"We are go- 
ing to have a fac- 
ulty dinner ev- 
ery fall, "Fox said 
"We thought 
about having it 

every semester, but decided it would 
be a lot of teachers coming through 

"It was good to be on 
the same level as the 
teachers and get them on 
our grounds. "

"We needed it not 
only to protect lives, but 
also to prevent drinking 
and driving." 

Carolyn Cormaci, 

junior in bakery science 

and management 

o combat drunken driving, Alpha 
Delta Pi members sponsored ADPi 
Dry, a designated driver system. 

Each Friday 
and Saturday 
night from 10 
p.m. to 2:30 
a.m., three 
people were on 
call at the house 
for members 
who needed a 
ride home, said 
Kristina Miller, 
ADPi president 
and senior in 

Nights were assigned by room 
order, she said. If a room had only 
two women, a pledge or an out-of- 
house member was assigned. 

"I thought it was a good idea," 
said Carolyn Cormaci, junior in 
bakery science and management. 
"We needed it not only to protect 
lives, but also to prevent drinking 
and driving." 

Cormaci said she talked to other 
students to get ideas for implement- 
ing the program and to solve some 
of its problems. 

Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity had 
provided a similar service to its mem- 
bers, and the ADPis saw a need for 
a program in their own house, Miller 

"It (ADPi Dry) has worked re- 
ally well," she said. "We thought 
people might abuse it, but it hasn't 
been a problem." 

Amy Vaughan, sophomore in 
business administration, said she spent 

by Trisha Benninga 

her assigned night studying for a test 
between calls. Vaughan said most 
everyone was willing to give up a 
night to be a driver. 

"I think people have had a good 
attitude about it (ADPi Dry)," she 
said. "It's just one night that you 
have to drive. Considering there are 
so many people, I don't think asking 
people to drive one night is asking 
too much." 

Some members complained 
about being assigned a night they 
didn't want, Cormaci said. How- 
ever, members were allowed to 
switch nights with other members. 

"With so many people in the 
house, chances are everyone will 
only have to do it once," Cormaci 
said. "Everyone has been willing to 
put their time into it."

ouletter, a traditional party for the 
men of Alpha Gamma Rho, en- 
couraged members to get back to 
their roots. 

Nate Allen, sophomore in ani- 
mal sciences and industry, said the 
party had special meaning to mem- 
bers of the house. 

"It means a lot to us because it 
takes us back to our agricultural and 
cowboy background," he said. 

The AGRs have celebrated 
Rouletter for more than 50 years. 

"It's the oldest party on cam- 
pus," Allen said. 

In the early years, Rouletter took 
place at the AGR house. Todd 
Johnson, senior in agricultural eco- 
nomics, said members used to set up 
saloon doors and hay bales in the 
basement and a teepee in the back 
yard. They also had a gambling 

"Since the alcohol policy was 
put into effect, we've had it out in a 

barn in Alta Vista," Johnson said. 

Although the location changed 
and the rules became stricter, the 
AGRs were determined to have fun 
at the party. 

"A lot of the guys grow beards 
the week before," Johnson said. "A 
couple of years ago we had a me- 
chanical bull . Everyone puts on their 
cowboy gear, and the best thing is 
that here, it's all real." 

Lance Meyer, senior in agri- 
business, said many of the AGRs 
come from an agricultural back- 

"The event is fun because it's 
traditional," he said. "It's all about 
wearing our boots and hats and 
having a great time." 

Scott Knappenberger, freshman 
in electrical engineering, attended 
Rouletter for the first time. He 
enjoyed the party and said it made 
the members become closer friends. 

"It (Rouletter) was great because 

by Paula Murphy 

all of the brothers were together," 
Knappenberger said. "I think we 
learned a lot about each other at the 
party and the week before." 

Adam Weigand, AGR president 
and senior in animal sciences and 
industry, said 
wasn't just a 
one-night party. 

"It's a week- 
long attitude," 
Weigand said. 
"It's an attitude 
that makes us 
appreciate how 
long people have been going to 
Rouletter and how many AGRs 
have celebrated before us." 

Johnson said alumni often asked 
about Rouletter. 

"We have some alumni who 
come back just for the party," he 
said. "One alumnus has been re- 
turning for the last five or six years." 

"It's all about wearing 
our boots and hats and 
having a great time. "

"It's not the house that 
we sell it's the members 
that we sell " 

Jimmy Gibbs, 
senior in leisure studies 

oving out of their house and into 
apartments, Alpha Kappa Lambda 
fraternity members adjusted to new 
living arrangements. The members 
leased their house 
and moved into 
the Royal Tow- 
ers Apartments in 
the 61 

The AKLs 
moved because 
a decrease in 
made the house 
too expensive to maintain. They 
leased the house to the Phi Gamma 
Delta fraternity until AKL member- 
ship increased. 

"In the beginning, everybody 
was really excited about living in 
Royal Towers," saidBrent Peterson, 
rush coordinator and senior in mar- 
keting. "I don't think anybody real- 
ized until a couple of months into 
school how much we actually missed 

living in the house." 

Mike Pruente, public relations 
coordinator and sophomore in ra- 
dio television, said some of the older 
members struggled with moving. 

"The ones who had a hard time 
with it (moving into Royal Towers 
Apartments) were the older mem- 
bers, the ones who were really at- 
tached to the house," he said. "A 
few of them didn't come back." 

After the move, membership 
dropped to about two dozen men, 
Peterson said. 

Jimmy Gibbs, AKL president 
and senior in leisure studies, said 
the AKLs continued many of their 
activities, but altered them to suit 
their needs. They had weekly chap- 
ter meetings in order to keep in 
touch. Instead of formal dinner, all 
the members ate dinner in 
someone's apartment or at a restau- 
rant. Not having a house brought 
the fraternity members closer to- 

by Trisha Benninga 

gether, Gibbs said. 

"In the past, there were so many 
people living together but not with 
the same goal," Gibbs said. "Now 
we all have the common goal of 
getting the house back. That's what 
we're all working for." 

To increase their membership, 
Gibbs said they implemented more 
membership development programs 
and invited speakers from the Uni- 
versity. They also changed their 
recruitment techniques. 

"It's not the house that we sell, 
it's the members that we sell," Gibbs 

Pruente said not having a house 
made the members work harder in 
recruiting new members. 

"We have to emphasize the 
members and not necessarily the 
structure of the house," he said. 
"We're forming rush teams instead 
ofjust rush chairmen, so everybody 
gets involved in meeting guys."

"We did it for the 
Copper Bowl and the 
success of the football 
team and tied it in with 
the Christmas spirit. " 

Steve Lauberth, 

senior in journalism and 

mass communications 

lpha Tau Omega fraternity mem- 
bers said they celebrated the holiday 
season with style. Christmas lights, 
parties, caroling 
and gift ex- 
changes were 
part of their cel- 

"We have a 
Christmas party 
every year called 
Tau Humbug," 
said Randall 
Newth, senior 
in pre-medi- 

The week 
before the party 
the ATOs in- 
vited dates to a Christmas dinner. 

"We usually have two or three 
hot tubs and a disc jockey," said 
Damon Eamshaw, ATO president 
and senior in management. 

Everyone dressed in festive attire 
for the party, he said. Decorating the 
house was done on a volunteer basis. 

"A bunch of guys came back 
early from Thanksgiving break and 
helped decorate the house," 
Eamshaw said. 

The house's decorations were an 
important part for lifting spirits to 
celebrate the chapter's holiday sea- 

"We decorate our house big 
rime," Newth said. "We have a 
wildcat and a Christmas tree." 

The wildcat was the work of 
Steve Lauberth, senior injoumalism 

by Leigh Nevam 

and mass communications. Lauberth 
was an out-of-house member who 
designed a wildcat head on his house 
using Christmas lights, coat hangers 
and electrical tape. 

"They asked me to do one at the 
(ATO) house," Lauberth said. 
"We're spreading the wildcat spirit. 
We did it for the Copper Bowl and 
the success of the football team andi 
tied it in with the Christmas spirit." 

A picture of the house with the 
wildcat head was included in the 
ATO alumni newsletter to show 
how the ATOs helped spread the 
Christmas spirit. 

"We all get into it (the Christmas 
season)," Newth said. "Everybody 
went caroling, and we had a lot of

because everyone actually partici- 
pates," Norris said. "Everybody 
wants to go because it's lots of fun." 

Five seniors were nominated to 
be the bride, and one was selected 
by a house vote. A groom was 
chosen from the SAE house. Three 
bridesmaids and three groomsmen 
were chosen, and two new mem- 
bers were selected to be flower girls

"The biggest thing

eta Sigma Psi members sponsored a 
$350,000 fund-raising campaign, 
for Success," to 
fund their 
house's renova- 

"The biggest 
thing we've fo- 
cused on this 
year was mak- 
ing plans for the 
remodeling to 
begin next 
year," said Greg 
Myers, Beta Sig 
president and 
senior in mechanical engineering. 

"We're looking at this as an oppor- 
tunity for increasing the success of 
the chapter." 

Alumni decided in early Sep- 
tember to renovate the house, which 
was the only Lutheran fraternity 
chapter in Kansas. The remodeling 
was scheduled to begin during sum- 
mer 1994, Myers said. 

Mark Good, junior in gerontol- 
ogy, said the chapter's alumni were 
enthusiastic about funding the reno- 

"Our house is now 30 years old, 
so it was time to make some neces- 
sary changes," Good said. "The 
alumni are usually pretty eager to 
tackle big jobs such as this, but 

by Chad Harris 

current members need to fund the 
little things." 

The renovations included up- 
grading some of the older parts of 
the house including the guest room 
and kitchen area, said LaNell Harris, 
Beta Sig housemom. 

The Beta Sigs looked forward to 
seeing the house after the renova- 
tions and thought the remodeling 
would be used to their advantage, 
Good said. 

"This (remodeling) will be a real 
boost for the house, " he said. ' 'We're 
at 50 members now and looking to 
increase that (number). We hope 
the remodeling goes well and that 
LaNell stays with us awhile."

Brian Ward, 
Beta president 
and senior in in-

develop team- 
work and a competitive nature." 

The Betas were serious about

"There is no sport

Brian Ward, 

senior in industrial 


Emphasizing all sports was the 
Betas' key to success. 

"There is no sport that we aren't 
competitive in," Ward said. "We 
have good balance. Not only do we 
emphasize team sports, we also do 
well in individual sports like hand- 
ball, racquetball and cross country." 

Members were encouraged to 
participate in intramurals when they 
first joined the house. 

"We introduce new members to 
sports they have never had the op- 
portunity to play before," Ward 
said. "It's (competingin intramurals) 
a priority of the house." 

Having members compete in 
intramurals was important to the 
chapter, and many Betas partici- 
pated throughout their college years . 

"We try to get everyone in- 
volved in intramurals," said Jason 
Higgins, senior in business admin- 
istration. ' 'We put pressure on mem- 
bers to go to practice." 

by Natalie Hulse 

Many Betas competed in sports 
they had participated in during high 
school, but some members learned 
new sports. 

" I competed in volleyball, which 
I began playing my sophomore year 
in high school, " said Sean Reynolds, 
freshman in pre-veterinary medi- 
cine. "I learned how to play from 
girls on the team. I also competed in 
doubles racquetball, which I re- 
cently learned to play." 

Although the members placed 
importance on intramurals, they also 
balanced their time with studying. 

"We really take pride in 
intramurals," Higgins said, "but we 
put academics before sports." 

Intramurals served as a break from 
studying, Reynolds said. 

"Sports are a good way to relieve 
the stress and tension of school," he 
said. "They are a lot of fun — just 
good, clean competition between 
us and other fraternities."

hen tension ran high, members of 
Chi Omega sorority relieved stress. 

"During finals week, we like to 
take a break and have a little fun with 
a talent show," said Chrisy Perry, 
junior in pre-physical therapy. 

The talent night included lip- 
syncing groups and similar acts. 

Homecoming week offered ac- 
tivities the whole house participated 
in, including a skit and a body- 
building routine. Chi O's said they 
were pleased with their second- 
place overall finish. 

"We had a lot of fun and got 
along well with the Sigma Chis and 
the TKEs," Perry said. 

Their interaction with fraterni- 
ties did not end with Homecoming. 
The Christmas season presented an 
opportunity to help children. 

"The Chi O's sponsored a Christ- 
mas party with the Lambda Chis," 
said Julie Dreiling, junior in human 
development and family studies. 
"The party involved kids from Big 
Brothers/Big Sisters." 

A Lambda Chi member dressed 
up as Santa Claus and presents were 
given to the children. 

"Each year the Lambda Chis spon- 
sor this activity," she said. "This year 
they picked us to do it with them." 

Christmas also brought the house 
closer together. 

"We all meet at the house to 
decorate," Dreiling said. "We also 
go pick out a Christmas tree."

rom participating in Homecoming 
to trying to find a house, Delta Chi 
members worked to establish a strong 
base for their chapter. 

The fraternity's involvement in 
Homecoming was a first for the 
colony, said Kurt Schultz, 
chapterhood chairman and junior 
in architecture. 

"Our participation in Homecom- 
ing with AKL (Alpha Kappa Lambda) 
and Sigma Kappa was an experience 
everyone enjoyed," Schultzsaid. "For 
the Delta Chi members, it was some- 
thing we could call our own; our first 

Members of Delta Chi partici- 
pated in their second year at the 
University after a 14-year absence. 
They said they wanted to establish 
traditions and find a home. The 
search for a house for the 1994 

school year was a main priority of all 
the members, said Adrian 
Bustamante, housing committee 
chairman and sophomore in pre- 
veterinary medicine. 

"We've got three leads so far, but 
real estate in Manhattan is pretty 
limited for us right now," 
Bustamante said. "If you were to ask 
almost any Delta Chi member what 
the biggest goal of the fraternity was, 
he'd probably say to find a house." 

Getting the Delta Chi National 
Chapter to accept K-State's colony 
for chapterhood was another main 
priority, said Chris Donaldson, Delta 
Chi president and senior in me- 
chanical engineering. 

"Our biggest goal is to get na- 
tionals to accept us for chapterhood. 
To do this, we need a petition sent 
to nationals proving our

worth," Donaldson said. "If they 
accept it, then 
Council at K- 
State will accept 
it, and we're of- 
ficially a house."

ith hundreds of tye-died T-shirts 
and three alternative bands, the Delta 
Delta Delta sorority sponsored a 
new philanthropy Oct. 1 . 

Deltapalooza, a concert at Me- 
morial Stadium, was chosen to re- 
place Jail-n-Bail, their original phi- 
lanthropy, because it followed the 
chapter's new alcohol policy and 
reached a more diverse crowd, mem- 
bers said. 

"I thought a concert would be a 
good, non-competitive way for 
greeks and non-greeks to join to- 
gether and have a good time," said 
Whitney Myers, philanthropy chair- 
man and junior in finance. 

The college bands Salty Iguanas, 
Waxed Tadpoles and Turquoise Sol 

"We chose the bands because 
they are popular within the Man- 
hattan and Lawrence areas," said 

Kerry Ginie, sophomore in English. 
"Waxed Tadpoles are good, and 
Salty Iguanas always draws a crowd 
in Manhattan. We wanted Tur- 
quoise Sol because they are popular 
in Lawrence." 

Because it was a first-year philan- 
thropy, the sorority worked hard to 
advertise the event. 

"We put a lot of fliers around 
campus and the community," Ginie 
said. "We also had a table outside the 
Union with a microphone and tried 
to get people to come buy tickets. 
We even made passers-by model 
T-shirts. It was hilarious." 

Money was raised by selling tick- 
ets that cost $5 before the concert 
and $7 at the door. Local vendors 
made donations and sold their food 
and merchandise at the concert. T- 
shirts tie-dyed by chapter members 
were also sold. The chapter raised 

more than $1,000 for St. Jude's 
Children's Cancer Research. 

"For a first-year philanthropy, 
this was a big success because we 
more than broke even — we made 
money," Myers said. 

The members 
planned to make 
the concert an 
annual event. 
Jamie Jacobs, se- 
nior in elemen- 
tary education, 
said she hoped at- 
tendance would 
increase through- 
out the years.

hen Delta Sigma Phi fraternity mem- 
bers were looking for a summer 
service project, they wanted to in- 
volve area children. They decided 
to use their athletic abilities and 
teach baseball skills to Manhattan's 

"Delta Sigma Phi sponsors a base- 
ball team each summer," said Brian 
Link, junior in secondary educa- 
tion. "We usually work with a team 
made up of 12-year-old boys." 

The team was part of the Biscuit 
I baseball league for boys sponsored 
by the Manhattan Parks and Recre- 
ation Department. The Delta Sigs 
who lived in Manhattan during the 
summer volunteered to coach the 

"It is really fun for the guys who 
actually participate and sponsor the 
team," said Daryl Rieke, senior in 
milling science and management. 

The Delta Sigs began sponsor- 
ing the team about six or seven 
years ago, Pvieke said. They de- 
cided to sponsor a youth baseball 
team because it was a way to keep 
children involved in community 

"There is a lot of need for activi- 
ties for kids in the summer around 
here," he said. "The team is filling a 
void for a lot of them." 

The team played two exhibition 
games and eight regular-season 
games that led to a season-ending 
tournament. The games usually took 

by Trisha Benninga 

place at Northview Park. 

Rieke was an assistant coach for 
the 1992 team and the coach of the 
1993 team. He lived in Manhattan 
the past two 
summers to take 
classes and 
work, so he de- 
cided to volun- 
teer his time. 
Working with 
children made 
Rieke said. 

"It (coaching) was a pretty re- 
warding experience," he said. "It 
was challenging. They are all 12 
years old and full of life."

"We want to have a 
good 75th (anniversary), 
but more importantly, 
we want to show our 
alumni that were not 
a bunch of trouble- 
makers. " 

Kelly Wenz, 
Delta Tau Delta president 
and junior in agricultural 

embers of Delta Tau Delta cel- 
ebrated 75 years in three days. 

The Delts in- 
vited Gamma 
Chi alumni to 
participate in 
events May 5-7 
honoring their 
75-year pres- 
ence on campus. 
Tim Ward, 
75th anniversary 
chairman and 
senior in jour- 
nalism and mass 

tions, said he had 
been planning 
events for the 
weekend for 1- 
1/2 years. 
"On Friday, 
the fifth (of May), we are renting out 


Bramlage Coliseum," Ward said. 
"In the corridors, we are setting up 
7-10 displays of the 75 years. There 
will be hors d'oeuvres and cocktails 
served in the Legends room." 

Saturday consisted of an annual 
golf tournament, trips to Fields of 
Fair winery and lunch at the Hays 
House in Council Grove, Ward said. 

"That night we have our formal 
at the Holidome and speakers at 
dinner," he said. 

Marlin Fitzwater, K-State alum- 
nus and former White House press 
secretary for presidents Reagan and 
Bush, Norval Stephens, international 
fraternity president, and Ken File, 
executive director of the national 
fraternity, were the keynote speak- 
ers invited to address the 300-400 

Support from alumni was im- 
portant to the chapter, said Kelly 

by Kimberly Wishar 

Wenz, Delt president and junior ir 
agricultural economics. The anni 
versary celebration was also the time 
alumni were informed about change; 
in the house and the chapter's goals 

"We want to have a good 75th 
(anniversary), but more importantly 
we want to show our alumni thai 
we're not a bunch of troublemak- 
ers," he said. 

During the weekend, alumni alsc 
learned of house improvements. 

"We increased two spots in 
grades, and we have a new roof 
new study room, new landscape anc 
new carpet," Wenz said. 

The weekend wrapped up Sun- 
day with a brunch served at the Dell J 

"This is just a chance for people 
to drink a cup of coffee and have i 
croissant on the way out of town,' 
Ward said.

larmHouse fraternity members were 
often found shooting hoops behind 
their house. When they planned for 
their philanthropy, members de- 
cided to use their love of basketball 
to help the less fortunate. 

The members joined Arnold Air 
Society, which had started a basket- 
ball tournament more than three 
years ago, in promoting and hosting 
Three-on-Three in the 'Ville. 

The April 10 tournament drew 
four-member teams from all over 
the state. The largest majority of 
teams were formed by college stu- 
dents who signed up three players 
and an alternate. Fort Riley soldiers 
and members of Manhattan's recre- 
ational teams also participated in the 

"We raised money through en- 
try fees. We charged $40 a team," 
said Matt Perrier, tournament chair- 

man and sophomore in animal sci- 
ences and industry. "We also had 
corporate sponsors like Pizza Hut." 

Pizza Hut was the largest sponsor 
and donated T-shirts and other items. 
Local stores also donated clothing 
items and free meals. 

To increase participation in the 
tournament, Doug Gruenbacher, 
junior in biochemistry, sent out fli- 
ers to recreational centers and schools 
across the state. 

A total of 45 teams participated 
in the all-day three-on-three tour- 
nament. The $250 first-place prize 
was an incentive for both male and 
female teams to sign up. 

"We gave out cash prizes for first 
andsecond place," Perriersaid. "We 
also held drawings for donated items 
like CDs throughout the day." 

The tournament took place in 
the parking lot behind Rusty's Last 

by Claudette Riley 

Chance Restaurant & Saloon and 
was in cooperation with KQLA- 
FM 103.9. The philanthropy raised 
$1000, which 
was donated to 
local agencies. 

"The money 
went to Big 
Lakes Develop- 
mental Agency 
and the KSU 
Vietnam Me- 
morial," said Jeff 
Peterson, Farm- 
House president 
and senior in ani- 
mal sciences and 

The philanthropy was a success, 
Perrier said. 

"The turnout was great," he said. 
"Wives, girlfriends, friends and 
people in the area came to watch." 

"The money went to 
Big Lakes Developmen- 
tal agency and the KSU

of support and participation," said 
Angela Blumel, junior in human 
development and family studies. 

Blumel said being involved made 
her feel comfortable and accepted in 
the house filled with diverse mem- 

Involvement in chapter activi- 
ties helped members bond, said 
Jocelyn Viterna, junior in sociol- 
ogy. Members said it was the little 
gestures, such as picking friends up 
from Aggieville, that made their 
friendships stronger. 

"We're aU very trusting and rely 
on each other a lot," said Anna 

by Michele Schroeder 

Kehde, junior in social work. 

Involvement in Gamma Phi ac- 
tivities was not limited to social 
events. The members were required 
to complete study hours each week. 
To make studyingmore fun. Gamma 
Phis used games such as coloring a 
paper thermostat with the hours 
members studied each day. This was 
an incentive for members to achieve 
their study goals. 

Living in the house, members 
not only received encouragement 
to study for their classes but also to 
learn from other people, Blumel 

"Being a Gamma Phi Beta has 
opened up a lot of opportunities for 
me," she said.

I embers of Kappa Alpha Theta so- 
rority slept a little better each night 
because of their pledge mom. 

Each Theta was given a pillow 
and a comforter or quilt from her 
pledge mom. The Delta Eta chapter 
was the only Theta house that car- 
ried on this tradition. 

"I like it because it makes us 
unique from other (Theta) houses," 
said Sandra Beer, sophomore in 
environmental design. 

The pillows were given at Christ- 
mas time, and the quilts were part of 
the Theta Founder's Day activities 
in late January. 

The pillows and bedding often 
included the pledge daughter's name 
and one of Theta's symbols. The 
pledge moms chose the design they 

"I went to five fabric stores to 
find my fabric because I knew she 

wouldn't want anything flowery," 
said Sherry Krisman, sophomore in 
environmental design. "I was look- 
ing for plaid flannel." 

Some Thetas began working on 
the quilts as soon as they were 
matched with their pledge daughters. 

"I think the first step is coordi- 
nating it (the quilt) with your pil- 
low and then trying to keep any 
family traditions you may have," 
Beer said. 

For example, Krisman said her 
Theta family had pillows in the 
shape of a kite, which was a Theta 
symbol. Other family traditions in- 
cluded the colors and type of fabric 

Although the pillows often cost 
as much as $50, they had more than 
just a monetary value to the pledge 
moms and daughters. 

"It makes you feel good that you

worked on something to pass on to 
your daughter," said Shelly Kell, 
junior in sec- 
ondary educa- 

New mem- 
bers first saw the 
quilts when they 
went through 
msh. The Thetas 
showed them 
during Open 
House Day. 

"I remember 
(when I first saw 
them) I thought, 
'Wow, they take 
the time to make 
you feel really 
special,' " Kell 
said. "After I got mine, I carted my 
pillow and quilt home to show my 

"I think the first step 
is coordinating it (the 
quilt) with your pillow 
and then trying to keep 
any family traditions 
you may have. "

Kappa Delta 



t had been a struggle. 

For several years they fought low 
rush numbers and rumors that hin- 
dered their situation. After all at- 
tempts had been made to gain more 
pledges, members of Kappa Delta 
sorority voted to officially close their 
house Dec. 18. 

"This house will be locked up," 
said LaTricia McCune, KD presi- 
dent and senior in geography. "Ev- 
erything will be covered, and the 
house will be dormant." 

KDs worked to increase mem- 
bership during rush but fell short of 
the numbers needed to function as 
an efficient sorority, she said. 

"It is more the numbers than the 
money," McCune said. "When your 
numbers decrease so much, it is such 
a battle to get them back up." 

For years, the KD house fought 
rumors they were going to close, 
and McCune said this hurt them 
during formal rush. 

"They (rumors) have been go- 
ing on as long as I've been here, " she 
said. "When you're fighting a ru- 
mor you hear every year, it's going 
to get into an 1 8-y ear-old's head." 

Discussion of the house closing 

came as a shock, said Lorna Haahr, 
sophomore in civil engineering. 

"Initially, I thought about myself 
and what I was going to do," she 
said. "Then I thought about the 
national sorority, and that it (clos- 
ing) might be better for them." 

Dealing with the house closing 
was stressful, Haahr said. 

"It was the emotional aspects of 
the house closing," she said, "plus 
the reality of finding a place to live." 

All the members had to find 
apartments byjanuary, McCune said. 
Although she said it was difficult, 
everyone found new homes. 

Newly initiated KDs were upset 
because they were inducted into 
alumnae status, McCune said. 

"Once you go through initia- 
tion, you're a Kappa Delta for life," 
she said. "It was difficult for newly 
initiated women because they will 
never experience sorority life." 

Angie Rathbun, freshman in psy- 
chology, said she was initially upset 
by the decision to close the house. 

"At first I had hard feelings to- 
ward the girls," she said. "I thought 
they had known and initiated us 
anyway. As time went on, I realized 

by Shannon Yust 

they didn't actually know it would 
come down to this." 

The older KDs understood and 
were supportive, Rathbun said. 

The KD house had been on 
campus for 73 years and their mort- 
gage had been paid off for 1 1 years. 
Nationals planned to reopen the 
house after a 
complete col- 
lege generation, 
McCune said. 

She was con- 
fident the house 
would reopen. 

"A lot of 
chapters open up 
and blossom be- 
cause it is a new 
face on cam- 
pus," she said. "I 
know of other chapters that have 
recolonized, and it's been success- 
ful. Within the right time frame, it's 
going to be successful for us also." 

Although closing was difficult, 
Haahr supported the decision. 

"I really do think when I come 
back in 10 years," she said, "there 
will be a house to open up its doors 
to us as we do to our alumnae now . ' ' 

"When your numbers 
decrease so much, it is 
such a battle to get them 
back up. "

nity among diversity was a feeling 
Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority mem- 
bers said they experienced. 

"I can go to any room in the 
house and talk to people," said 
Heather Harris, sophomore in pre- 
medicine. "It's like having 71 best 
friends living together." 

Although members came from 
different backgrounds, they all got 
along well, said Shelley Mundhenke, 
sophomore in modern languages. 

Pledge sneaks were a good way 
to get to know each other, she said. 
The pledges did not live in the 
house, so at first it was hard for them 
to become good friends. 

"We spent the whole weekend 
getting to know the girls in our 
pledge class," Mundhenke said. 

The pledges used sneak as a break 

from school without the active 
members knowing when it was. 
The pledges pulled pranks on the 
actives before they left. They took 
the actives' shower buckets and put 
them on the Beta Theta Pi lawn, 
Mundhenke said. 

After sneak, the Kappas contin- 
ued to participate in activities with 
their pledge class. Going bowling or 
attending movies together was not 
an uncommon occurrence, said 
Rebecca Sherer, junior in apparel 
and textile marketing. 

"We like to do things together," 
she said. "Everyone is really close, 
with no conflicts (between mem- 

The members also participated 
in activities together away from 
school, Harris said. Some Kappas 

by Brent Dungan 
went skiing over spring break or got 
together during the summer to so- 
cialize. During the school year, 
friendships were made, and the Kap- 
pas worked to keep the friendships 
throughout the year. 

"The house 
really came to- 
gether during 
Harris said. "A 
lot ofpeople take 
charge and make 
things happen." 

The Kappas 
have members 
who were talented in a wide variety 
of areas including athletics, academ- 
ics and leadership, Harris said. 

"It (talent) is not consolidated in 
one area of excellence," she said. 

"A lot ofpeople take 
charge and make things 
happen. "

Several years ago a suggestion 
was made to add a study room to the 
house. For the past five years, the 
chapter raised money at their annual 
pig roast. The room was dedicated 
this year at their 75th annual dinner. 

"Last semester, we were ranked 
sixth in grades," said Rob Beaman, 
senior in psychology. "The comple- 
tion of the new addition will help us 
maintain and raise this standing." 

The Davis-Fiser Leadership Hall 
was the name of the new addition, 
which was built in honor of two 
alumni, Evan Davis and Lud Fiser. 
Both men were members of the 
chapter in the 1930s. 

Davis owned an architectural firm 
located in Topeka, but recently re- 
tired. During his college years, he 
was a leader in Kappa Sig and on 

campus. He was also an active mem- 
ber in the Topeka and Manhattan 
alumni chapters and designed the 
current Kappa Sig house during the 

Fiser was a two-sport letterman 
in baseball and football. In the 1 940s 
he coached both sports at the Uni- 
versity. He was the chapter's alumni 
adviser for many years and also served 
on the alumni board. The Lud Fiser 
Youth Sports Complex at CiCo 
Park was also dedicated in his honor. 

The Kappa Sigs honored the 
men because of their involvement 
with the chapter. Members said hav- 
ing alumni who kept in touch with 
the house was important. 

"We really appreciate all the 
alumni support and their continued 
efforts to improve our study envi- 
ronment," said Patrick Duerksen, 
senior in agribusiness. 

Alumni helped fund the new 
addition, which contained several 

by Tori Niehoff 

oak tables and study cubicles. The 
addition had two conference rooms 
for groups to meet and study. It also 
had several computers that were 
linked to the mainframe on campus. 
"We used to have the study 
room in the 
main dining 
room with no 
privacy," said 
Lance Miller, 
Kappa Sig presi- 
dent and junior 
in pre-law. 
"The new addi- 
tion is in a se- 
cluded part of 
the house, with 
no traffic going 
through it. It is 
easier to main- 
tain a 24-hour quiet area, and no 
one has to lock themselves away on 
campus to find a quiet place to 

"We really appreciate 
all the alumni support 
and their continued 
efforts to improve our 
study environment. "

Phi Delta Theta 




t was never too late to be initiated 
into the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. 

Larry Johnson, who attended K- 
State from 1958-59, never fulfilled 
the grade requirements necessary to 
be initiated into the fraternity, or so 
he thought. Johnson enlisted in the 
military at the end of his freshman 
year. After he enlisted, he learned 
that one of his grades had been 
changed, allowing him to meet the 
grade requirements, said Mike Shull, 
Phi Delt president and senior in 

Johnson, with the encourage- 
ment of some ofhis pledge brothers, 
wrote to the Phi Delt province 
president and asked if he could be 
initiated, Shull said. The province 
president agreed to the request and 
asked the chapter to vote on the 

issue. After the chapter voted yes, 
the members received permission 
from their nationals to initiate 

"We wanted to fulfill his lifelong 
dream," Shull said. 

The initiation took place Oct. 
10. Johnson journeyed from Cali- 
fornia and 12 ofhis pledge brothers 
flew in from other parts of the coun- 
try to attend the special initiation. 

"At first I was skeptical because 
of the timing, but our housemom 
and cook helped out, and every- 
thing fell into place," Shull said. "It 
was a good experience for the whole 
house, and I think it (Johnson's 
initiation) will benefit the future of 
Phi Delta Theta." 

The whole house participated in 
Johnson's initiation, Shull said. It 

by Jill Paradise 

was the best turnout he had ever 
seen for an initiation, and he said 
everything ran smoothly. 

"It was neat seeing a guy get 
initiated after all these years," said 
Alex Intfen, junior in construction

Phi Gamma Delta 


I hree fraternities traded houses. 

Alpha Kappa Lambda members 
moved into Royal Towers Apart- 
ments because of low membership, 
allowing the Phi Gamma Deltas to 
move in until their new house was 
built. Pi Kappa Phi members bought 
the vacant Fiji house. 

"We (Fijis) moved because our 
house was small," said Jay Cavnar, 
sophomore in civil engineering. 
"Ideally, we wanted to stay at the 
old house until we're ready to move 
into the new house, but the timing 

was right between the three groups." 

The sale of their old house and 
donations from alumni helped fund 
the construction, which was to be 
completed by fall 1995. 

"To raise funds for our new 
house, we sold the property on 
Fairchild," Cavnar said. 

The main difference between 
the houses was the amount of space. 
Instead of 80 members, the AKL 
house only had space for 62. 

"It (the lack of space) didn't cause 
any complications," Cavnar said.

winch ell 

smoke into 


very time the Wildcats scored, so 
did the Children's Heart Founda- 

After each touchdown the Cats 
made at their home games, Phi 
Kappa Tau fraternity members cel- 
ebrated by firing a cannon and filling 
the air with purple smoke. This 
ritual helped the fraternity raise 
money for the foundation. 

"We fire a cannon when the 
game starts, each time K-State scores 
and at the end of the game," said 
Jason Smajda, Phi Tau president and 
senior in secondary education. "We 
went around to local businesses, 
fraternities and sororities for dona- 
tions to cover the cannon costs and 
to raise money for our cause. This 
year we raised $2,900." 

Sororities who donated money 

nominated one member as a Can- 
non Queen candidate. These women 
sat on the hill by the cannon during 
the games. One woman was cho- 
sen as queen at the end of the 
football season and received a $250 
cash scholarship and a $100 gift 
certificate to the Loft in Aggieville. 

"The queen was selected on 
the amount of volunteering they 
did outside their house," said 
Matt Gevedon, assistant philan- 
thropy chairman and junior in his- 

The Phi Taus won two awards 
from nationals for the events. 

"We won Most Creative Award 
and an award for raising the most 
money for the Children's Heart 
Foundation," Smajda said. "We re- 
ceived a cash award and a plaque."

"We like this program 
because it is cut and 
dried. " 

he men ofPhi Kappa Theta adopted 
an 1 1 -week pledge program during 
the spring semester, which was a 
change from their original 1 6-week 

The program consisted of a set of 
goals that had to 
be completed 
by each new 
member within 
a certain 
amount of time. 
"The new 
program is a lot 
more structured 
than the old 
one," said Jon Orr, senior in sociol- 
ogy. "The pledges know exactly 
what they have to do and have a 
good idea when they need to have 
the goals done." 

The shortened program was a 
benefit for the pledges, said Jerrod 
Caton, pledge and freshman in en- 
vironmental design. 

"It went pretty fast, but every- 

Jon Orr, 
senior in sociobgy 

thing got accomplished," he said. 
"It (the shortened program) made 
us more responsible because we had 
to accomplish more in a shorter 
period of time." 

The pledges experienced less 
burn out in the new pledge pro- 
gram, said Lance Farthing, Phi Kap 
president and junior in biology. 

"They didn't get sick of the pledge 
process because the program was 
shorter," Farthing said. "They have 
been more enthused and ready to 
contribute to the house after their 
pledgeship is over." 

The program still covered the 
needed material despite the shorter 
time frame, said Corey Black, pledge 
and freshman in mechanical engi- 

"I got everything out of it that I 
hoped I would," Black said. "The 
main thing was that I didn't feel any 
lower than them (the actives). Even 
though I was a pledge, I still felt like 
part of the house." 

by Tori Neihoff 

The active members also liked 
the shorter program. 

"It is an excellent program, and 
the guys were fired up and ready to 
make all the necessary changes," 
said Shawn Brougham, Phi Kap 
vice president and junior in me- 
chanical engineering. "After the 
members saw the new program work 
well, they think it is a more effective 
method of pledging." 

The new program was not a 
mandatory requirement from na- 
tionals. The chapter had the choice 
whether or not to install the short- 
ened program. 

"We like this program because it 
is cut and dried," Orr said. "A simple 
list of goals is required before each 
member is initiated." 

The shortened program was a 
positive change, Brougham said. 

"We stress diversity and think 
this new program will be another 
distinctive trait that symbolizes this 
fact," he said.

house tradition designated Senior 
Week to honor senior members. 

"I wanted to show the under- 
classmen how much fun it is to be a 
senior, " said Keri Victor, senior pro- 
gramming interest group leader and 
senior in interior design. 

Each day of the week, the Pi Beta 
Phi senior pledge class members 
participated in a different activity. 
On Monday they wore their letters 
on campus. Tuesday their 
housemom made them all snacks, 
Wednesday they received treats in 
chapter from the underclassmen, 
Thursday they all went to get yogurt 
and Friday they attended a function. 
On Saturday, the seniors had 
their annual Senior Crawl. The se- 
niors ate dinner together and then 
had a scavenger hunt that took them 
to eight local hangouts. 

"Senior Week is a chance for us 
to get together as a class before we 
go our separate ways," said Gwen 

Kelly, Pi Phi president and senior in 

Senior Week wasn't the only 
time the seniors participated in ac- 
tivities as a pledge class. During the 
week of Halloween, the Pi Phis 
were "senior spooks." The seniors 
gave gag gifts and clues to members 
of the junior pledge class before 
revealing themselves on Hallow- 
een. The new members were ' 'spook 
pals" to the seniors and gave them 
clues and gifts as a surprise. 

At Christmas time, seniors stayed 
up late to decorate the house on a 
designated night unknown to the 
rest of the members. 

"It was a way of getting up the 
Christmas decorations and getting 
the seniors involved," Kelly said. 

After decorating, they woke the 
other members by going to each 
room and singing Christmas carols. 
All the members came downstairs 
and sat around the Christmas tree to 

by Jill Paradise 

sing songs, drink hot chocolate and 
eat cookies. 

"It was a lot of fun but also a lot 
of work," Victor said. "I think the 
best part was waking everyone up 
and sitting around the Christmas 
tree singing car- 
ols with just the 
tree lights on." 

men also said 
they enjoyed the 
annual Christ- 
mas decorating. 

"Usually the 
seniors can be- 
come apathetic 
toward activities 
with the house," 
said Annie 
Lavin, junior in 

elementary education, "but the se- 
nior class pulled together and came 
up with a lot of creative things to 
keep our house close." 

"Senior Week is a 
chance for us to get 
together as a class before 
we go our separate 
ways. "

he men of Pi Kappa Alpha donated 
rime and money to Manhattan's Big 
Brothers/Big Sisters program by 
sponsoring a Halloween Hunt. 

The Pikes received help from 
eight sororities, with each donating 
$20 to participate. Money was also 
raised through donations from par- 
ents whose children attended the 
Pike's haunted house. 

The Pikes sponsored the event 
to help the community, said Brady 
Sauder, Halloween Hunt co-direc- 
tor and senior in kinesiology. 

"It's a fun way to show our 
appreciation to kids," he said. "We 
do it every year." 

The event provided a safe envi- 
ronment for kids who wanted to 
trick-or treat, Sauder said. 

About 500 people attended 
the haunted house, said Paul 
Tuttle, Halloween Hunt co-di- 
rector and senior in economics. 

"It took us six hours to set it 
up," he said. "Different people 
did different parts. We asked for 
volunteers in the house. A lot of

nee again they had a house to call 
their own. 

During summer 1991, the Pi 
Kappa Phi house burned down, 
leaving the members homeless. They 
spent the 1 99 1 -92 school year living 
together on the same floor in Marlatt 
Hall. The next year they lived in 
Royal Towers Apartments. In spring 
1993 the Pi Kaps bought the Phi 
Gamma Delta house and moved in 
during the fall. 

Living in the residence halls 
wasn't that bad because they were 
together, said Andy Larson, Pi Kap 
president and senior in geology. He 
said living in the Royal Towers 
Apartments was more difficult be- 
cause everyone had their own living 
space. However, members said hav- 
ing a house again made the chapter 


"It is a better situation than the 
dorms or apartments because every- 
one is living and acting as a unit 
instead of a bunch of pieces," said 
Jack Shaw, senior in biology. 

The Pi Kaps made themselves at 
home by having a pillow fight in 
their sleeping dorm that left the 
room completely covered with 
feathers. Their housemom had to 
sew most of their pillows together 

The Pi Kaps also pulled pranks 
on each other during formal dinner. 
These jokes included putting gold- 
fish in water glasses or red pepper in 
the desserts. They even started food 
fights from time to time. 

Living with the other members 
in one house was like living with a

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 


I he legend of Paddy Murphy varied 
among each Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
chapter, but the stories were all 
similar and the results were the 
same — one big party. 

"Each chapter has a different story. 
Some say he was one of the founding 
fathers, some say that he was the 
right-hand man to Al Capone," said 
Pat Ralston, SAE president and jun- 
ior in civil engineering. "Most agree 
he was a good pledge and then started 
drinking uncontrollably." 

The legend was the theme of an 
annual party that lasted an entire 
week. During this time, SAEs were 
required to wear the appropriate 
attire, which consisted of polyester 
suits and crazy ties. 

"People stare at us, and when we 
go out, people start laughing," 
Ralston said. "We don't really think 
about it, though." 

The party began with the selec- 

tion of a senior member to portray 
the alcoholic Paddy Murphy. 

"A lot of people think it's crazy 
to want to be Paddy, but we think 
it's a great honor," Ralston said. 
"Paddy is well-regarded." 

Each day had a different activity 
in Murphy's honor. Wednesday was 
Senior Night, a time for seniors to 
share their wildest stories of past 
Paddy Murphy parties. 

Thursday was the night the 
honorary Paddy Murphy pre- 
tended to die of alcohol poison- 
ing. Members of the house visited 
him in his coffin and an eulogy 
was delivered. 

By Friday, the party no longer 
involvedjust members of the house. 

"The second to last day is the 
biggest. I'd say we have close to 
1,000 people at the party," said 
Billy Dunn, junior in construction 
science. "The house is like walking

through Kite's (Bar & Grille)." 

Paddy Murphy was laid to rest 
on Saturday. 
Members of the 
house dressed in 
black and acted 
as pall bearers. 
The night's fes- 
tivities centered 
on the coffin. 

"The last day 
is the funnest be- 
cause it's finally 
over, and you 
can get some 
sleep," Dunn said. 

Although members said the week 
was exhausting, they looked for- 
ward to it every spring. 

"It's a good way to blow off 
steam and bring the guys together," 
Ralston said. "It gives you some- 
thing to look forward to. Everyone 
rallies around Paddy."

I he Sigma Chi fraternity was hon- 
ored with the Peterson Significant 
Chapter Award, presented to 20 
percent of all Sig chapters in the 

The chapter won the award after 
submitting a 75-page paper about 
their house to nationals. 

"It was a great honor for our 
house," said Ryan Plattner, Sigpresi- 
dent and senior in accounting. 
"About one in 45 houses receives it, 
so it was a great accomplishment." 

The chapter was also successful 
in hosting an Alumni Weekend 
during the football season. More 
than 100 people attended the event, 
which included a cook-out and 
house tours before the game. 

"We had a good turnout, and I 
feel the weekend was an overall 
success," Plattner said. 

Alumni who work for the Uni- 
versity were also honored. Athletic 
director Max Urick, a Sig alumnus, 
attended a formal dinner and chap- 
ter meeting. 

"We enjoyed getting to meet the 
new athletic director and spending 
time with a brother," Plattner said. 

Members also welcomed Tom 
Roberts, assistant dean of engineer- 
ing, back to campus. Besides his 
new job with the University, he 
served as Grand Praetor for Sig chap- 
ters and oversaw house rules and 

The Sigs also had 23 new mem- 

byjen Messelt 

bers join the house in the fall. The 

pledge class won the Sigma Nu-Chi 

Omega Pledge 

Games and 

worked on 


events within 

the community 

to help pay for 

their sneak to 

New Orleans. 

"They are a 
very impressive 
pledge class and 
are eager to learn 
about brother- 
hood and Sigma Chi," said Scott 
Mourhess, pledge trainer andjunior 
in hotel and restaurant management. 

"We had a good turn- 
out, and I feel the week- 
end was an overall 
success. "

leven months after their ground- 
breaking ceremony, members of the 
Sigma Kappa sorority hosted a home- 
coming celebration. 

The Nov. 6 ribbon-cutting cer- 
emony served as a grand opening for 
the new Sigma Kappa house. An 
open-campus invitation brought out 
community and University admin- 
istrators who had instrumental roles 
in planning and building the house. 

The construction, which started 
in December 1992, was completed 
in time for active Sigma Kappa 
members to move in before rush. 

"They had rush in the house. The 
active members really pulled together 
to get organized before we came (for 
msh)," said Amy Neaderhiser, fresh- 
man in arts and sciences. "I liked the 
girls, but it was their sense of pulling 
together for the house that really 
made me decide on Sigma Kappa." 

Amy Mull, Sigma Kappa presi- 
dent and junior in business adminis- 
tration, addressed the audience at 
the ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

"We are excited to be here," 
Mull said. "But first, there are many 
people to thank." 

The list of appreciation encom- 
passed parents and local business- 
men. Certificates were awarded to 
families who donated home fur- 
nishings, made dining room drapes 
or volunteered for yard work. 

Mull also honored Linda Hope, 
president of the Sigma Kappa house 
corporation, for the organizational skills 
that brought their dream to reality. 

"We are proud of our home and 
plan to be here for several years," 
Hope said. 

Barbara Fenters, Sigma Kappa's 
national treasurer, was presented a 
certificate of recognition for her 

by Claudette Riley 

support through the development 
and planning process. 

"We have reason to be proud of 
this home," Fenters said. "The sup- 
port and input from the community 
and University 

confirms that we We are pYOUa Of OUT 

are a wanted part 

of the campus, home and plan to be

members and corporation president 

had larger living 

quarters for the housemom than

For the founding members who 
had met weekly in the K-State Union 
before moving in, the ceremony was 
more than a homecoming — they 
finally had a place to call their own.

"We made several sled 
trains and traveled 
down the hill taking the 
attitude of all or none. " 

Mike McRee, 
senior in psychology 

igma Nu fraternity members lived 
in Manhattan's highest organized 

Their house was built on top of 
a high hill that was used for many 
different events. Rolling down the 
hill was a popu- 
lar activity new 
sorority mem- 
bers often par- 
ticipated in dur- 
ing rush week. 

"One of the 
best things about 
the hill is when 
each new soror- 
ity pledge class 
attempts to roll 
down the hill each fall," said Justin 
Nielson, senior in civil engineering. 
"We'll see a different group of 40 to 
50 girls every 15 minutes." 

Besides watching people roll 
down the hill, the members also 
enjoyed sledding on it during the 

"We made several sled trains and 
traveled down the hill taking the 
attitude of all or none," said Mike 
McRee, senior in psychology. "We 
linked together, and no one let go. 
We all ended up flying in the air two 
to three feet." 

The members also made a ramp 
at the bottom of the hill. The object 
was to sled down the icy hill and 
jump the ramp. They had to bail out 
before hitting the rocks that lined 
the bottom of the hill. 

Although snow made sledding 
possible, it also caused problems 
when the members tried to drive up 
or down their driveway. 

"We sometimes have to start 

by Tori Nieho J 

across the street and gun it to get i 
the hill," Nielson said. "The fii 
snow of each winter usually caus 
some wrecks at the bottom of o 

However, members said the 
were several advantages to living c 
the hill. 

"It's difficult to farm our yard 
try to TP us," said Chris Co 
senior in regional and communi 
planning. "We like the idea of fe( 
ing like the king of the hill." 

The Sigma Nus had many part 
on the hill. They roped off a desi 
nated area for bands to perform. T 
hill was also good for displayi 
decorations, McRee said. 

"The space on the hill is bene 
rial during Homecoming or holid 
because it provides room for a pletb 
of yard art possibilities," he said.

or the first time since 1985, the 
Kansas Beta Chapter of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon was among the top five 
percent of Sig Ep chapters in the 
country who displayed excellence 
in all areas of operation. Members 
were awarded the Buchanan Out- 
standing Chapter Award at their 
national meeting. 

"Chapters must be in the top 10 
percent on campus in grades, intra- 
mural participation, manpower, and 
the chapter must be financially sound 
to win the Buc Cup," said Chris 
Apell, rush chairman and senior in 
business administration. 

The SigEps made improvements 
in their chapter, which helped them 
win the Buc Cup, Apell said. 

"Last year we went from the 
fourth quartile in grades among fra- 

ternities on campus to the first 
quartile," he said. 

The award was a Revere-style 
silver bowl mounted on a base. It 
was given in honor of Edwin 
Buchanan, who served as Sig Ep's 
grand treasurer for 34 years. 

"I feel proud that our chapter 
received the cup. It's not something 
you work for every two years — it's 
somethingyou work for every day," 
said Scott Phillips, Sig Ep president 
and junior in secondary education. 
"Finally, we got recognized." 

The Sig Eps worked hard to 
receive the award, he said. 

"The steps we took were imple- 
menting a financial management 
program, adopting a more indi- 
vidualized education program, and 
(we had) several different elements 

by Jeremy Unruh 

of motivation like retreats and guest 
speakers who kept 
our chapter on 
track," Phillips said. 

Winning an- 
other Buc Cup was 
a goal Sig Ep mem- 
bers said they 
wanted to meet. 

"I'm going to 
target alumni op- 
erations for the 
renovation of the 
house in 1997 and 
build a strong phi- 
lanthropy to keep 
the Buc Cups com- 
ing to K-State," said 
Marc Williams, Sig 
Ep president-elect 
and senior in music education. 

"I feel proud that our 
chapter received the cup. 
Its not somethingyou 
work for every two years 
— its somethingyou 
work for every day "

hortly after school started, Sigma 
Sigma Sigma sorority members went 
on a camping trip to help them 
become better acquainted with each 

"We had to do skits on what we 
liked the best about the Tri Sig- 
mas," said Jenny Prieto, Tri Sigma 
president and senior in elementary 
education. "We also set goals and 
told stories." 

The skits included singing, danc- 
ing and acting. One skit was a 
remake to the song, "Hokey 
Pokey," said Cheryl Mann, junior 
in elementary education. 

The revised version was called 

"Sigma Pokey" and included verses 
such as "You put love in and get 
friendship out," she said. 

Another skit had a "Brady 
Bunch" theme. 

"Everyone parted their hair in 
the middle and combed it to the 
side," said Deborah Gill, junior in 
journalism and mass communica- 
tions. "They sang the opening song, 
but put different words to it. The 
skits were about sororities in gen- 
eral, specifically Tri Sigmas and col- 
lege fife." 

The camping trip served as a 
bonding experience for the pledges, 
Prieto said. While creating many

members with the qualities the chap- 
ter stressed in-

"Being a

I au Kappa Epsilon fraternity mem- 
bers focused their energy on making 
improvements to their house. Re- 
modeling was completed in the din- 
ing room, computer room, educa- 
tional center and TV room. The 
total project was a $50,000 invest- 
ment in the first floor of the house. 

"All of our time and effort were 
put into the remodeling," said Jeff 
Tauscher, TKE president and jun- 
ior in accounting. 

The entire dining room was reno- 
vated. New floor and ceiling tiles 
were installed along with three ceil- 
ing fans. The walls were painted, 
and solid oak doors and trim com- 
pleted the project. The room's im- 
provements had an estimated cost of 

The TKEs converted the old 

chapter room into a computer room 
and educational center. The com- 
puter room had two computers and 
two printers. New ceiling tile and 
carpet was added along with a new 
paint job. A copier was also leased, 
and ceiling fans were installed. 

"We have gotten a lot of use out 
of the computers and education 
room," said Eric Dragoo, sopho- 
more in business administration. 
"We hope to bring our grades up." 

The educational center had new 
carpet, ceiling tiles, painted walls 
and oak trim. 

The renovations in these two 
rooms were funded by the Tau 
Kappa Epsilon Alpha Lambda Foun- 
dation, which consisted of TKE 

The TV room, which doubled 

by Jen Messelt 

as the chapter room, also had im- 
provements made. The chapter's 
Mother's Club 
purchased a tele- 
vision, stereo 
system, ping- 
pong table, pool 
table and a dart 

Similar to the 
Mother's Club 
was the Dad's 
Club, which was 
established in the 
fall. These fathers worked to build a 
storage shed and improve the house's 

The TKEs' next project was to 
purchase a more efficient heating 
and air conditioning system within 
the next three years. 

"All of our time and 
effort were put into the 
remodeling. "

articipating in spontaneous activi- 
ties helped Theta Xi fraternity mem- 
bers develop brotherhood. 

"We had a Twister game on the 
capitol steps of Nebraska," said 
Stephen Seely, junior in pre-law. 
"Nine of them (fraternity brothers) 
decided to take a road trip to Lin- 
coln about 3 a.m. on a school night. 
They decided to play Twister be- 
cause they had an extra Twister mat. 
They drove back in time to go to 

Developing brotherhood also 
involved practical jokes. Once a 
Theta Xi member was locked in the 
phone booth and had to sing the 
"The Star-Spangled Banner" over 
the house's intercom before he was 
let out. 

The fun times brought mem- 
bers closer. One of the best things 

about the Theta Xi house was the 
family atmosphere, said Clint 
Leonard, sophomore in biochem- 

"We're different from most fra- 
ternities in that we only have 46 
guys," he said. "We're all forced to 
be really close together, and there's 
a lot of interaction." 

The initiation process also set the 
Theta Xi house apart from most 

"We have an associate program 
rather than a pledge program," said 
Ryan Lamberson, rush chairman 
and junior in secondary education. 
"The associate is equal to everybody 
else and has just as much say as the 
other people in the house. We don't 
go by class rank." 

When looking for new mem- 
bers, the Theta Xis wanted men 

by Michele Scbroeder 

who had leadership qualities, 
Lamberson said. 

"They (new members) have a 
3.5 grade point average and are 
involved in numerous activities. We 
don't want one-dimensional 
people," he said. 

"That (having "We had a Twister 

involved mem- 
bers) makes our g ame on ffe ca pitol StepS 

house function a 
lot better." 

Many mem- 
bers were in- 
volved on cam- 

of Nebraska. " 

Stephen Seely, 
junior in pre-law 


"We have ears on campus every- 
where," Lamberson said. "That's a 
big advantage for our fraternity. 
We've got an instant network of 
guys on campus, and it helps you out 
a lot."

100 students in 
50 rooms," said Dean Varnum, di- 
rector of faculties. "For the last two 
years the students have been living 

in Kansas Wesleyan's dormitories." 

The new building was needed 
because the former residence hall 
was condemned, said Bonnie 
Scranton, director of college ad- 
vancement. She said the new one 
would create a more traditional col- 
lege environment. 

"The old one was in very poor 
shape," Scranton said, "and we re- 
ally wanted to make this college a 
real college by bringing student life 
into the central part of campus." 

The rooms were designed as suites 
with four students sharing a bath- 
room, she said. Each room would 
be equipped with an IBM-compat- 
ible computer. 

The city of Salina's sales tax 
funded $800,000 of the $1.75 mil- 
lion, with the remaining amount 
raised through student fees, Varnum 

"They levied a one-half cent 

by Jeremy Unruk 

sales tax to pay for new construc- 
tion," Varnum said. "We built 
new main entrance and will be tak- 
ing bids for a circular entrance roac 
and parking lots. We also built ; 
3,500 square-foot addition to th( 
library and an additional 3,000 squan 
feet of mechanical laboratory ontc 
the technical center." 

K-State-Salina received an esti- 
mated $4.5 million to finance tht 
campus' expansions. A future projec 
slated for the campus included 
college center, Varnum said. 

"We'll be taking bids in mid- 
January for a college center, which 
will in effect be the student union 
It will have a cafeteria, studem

ealing with landlords was a source of 
aggravation for some students. 

The problems experienced by the 
residents of the apartment at 1031 
Bluemont Ave. were reflective of 
those experienced by many students. 

When Michele Meier, junior in 
marketing, Kristine Urban, junior 
in apparel and textile marketing, 
and their two roommates moved in, 
the apartment had burned-out light 
bulbs in almost every socket, grease 
on the walls and carpets, and warped 
kitchen tiles. 

"Basically, nothing was clean," 
Urban said. "The guys who left the 
place trashed it." 

Urban said she called the land- 
lord, Mike Lin, and asked for a 
cleaning crew. Two women came 
and cleaned but only did a mediocre 
job, and the roommates had to clean 
everything again, she said. 

Lin said he tried to please tenants. 

"We have nothing to hide," Lin 

said. "If they (tenants) really mess up 
the place, then we do the best we 
can to clean it up." 

One complaint the roommates 
had was water leakage. 

"The water will start backing up 
into our bathroom and through the 
ceiling and into Kristine's closet," 
Meier said. "It's done that a couple 
of times, and he (Lin) says it's our 
fault. The last time he said we must 
have enemies, and that they're do- 
ing it to us intentionally." 

Lin denied the accusations. 

"We never accuse anybody," he 
said. ' 'We normally j ust get a plu mber 
and resolve the problem." 

Urban also complained Lin was 
harsh with tenants about letting them 
into their apartments when they 
were locked out. In some cases, he

I f Dana Pierce, senior in elementary 
education, had her way, people 
would celebrate Christmas every 
day of the year. 

"If it was up to me, I would leave 
the Christmas tree up year-round 
and put seasonal decorations on it," 
Pierce said. "I convinced my room- 
mates to start decorating for Christ- 
mas after we took down the Hal- 
loween decorations." 

Pierce's love for Christmas started 
when she was young and has con- 
tinued throughout the years. 

"Christmas has always been such 
a positive time for me," Pierce said. 
"It brings out the spirit of giving in 
people and seems to be a magical 

She listed other reasons for en- 
joying the Christmas season in a 
letter she wrote to the Collegian, 
published Nov. 16, 1992. 

"Christmas is a time for giving, a 
time of families, a time of love and 

most importantly, a time of hope," 
she said in her letter. 

Pierce said she had more Christ- 
mas spirit than the average person, 
adorning her room year-round with 
Christmas lights and posters. She 
also had a sign on her door that 
counted down the days until Christ- 
mas starting 80 days before the holi- 
day. Whether it was March or De- 
cember, Pierce listened to Christ- 
mas music. 

"My roommates really didn't 
know how much I liked Christmas 
until I moved in with them," she 
said. "However, they put up with 
some of my Christmas decorations 
at odd times of the year. Secretly, I 
think they like it, but they won't 
admit it." 

Her roommates, Kristi Manion, 
Jenny Cornelius and Shannon 
Byrum, seniors in elementary edu- 
cation, agreed they did not know 
the extent of Pierce's love for the 

by Staci Cranwell 

holiday until after they moved in 
and saw her putting up Christmas 
lights in her room. 

"We don't mind her decorating 
as long as she 
keeps it con- 
tained in her 
room, at least 
until after Hal- 
loween,' ' Manion 
said. "The guys 
who live next 
door think we 
are weird be- 
cause they saw 
us singing carols 
when we were 
decorating Hal- 
loween cookies. " 

Pierce's decorations were a posi- 
tive addition to the apartment, 
Cornelius said. 

"She keeps us happy," Cornelius 
said. "She definitely has the Christ- 
mas spirit all year." 

"If it was up to me, I 
would leave the Christ- 
mas tree up year-round 
and put seasonal decora- 
tions on it. "

"Even though our 
lease said we couldn't 
have a pet, we 
wanted one." 

Tony Bowell, 
freshman in arts and sciences 

nimal-loving students ignored the 
clause in their leases that prohibited 
animals in their apartments and 
opened their 
homes to pets. 

"Even though 
our lease said we 
couldn't have a 
pet, we wanted 
one," said Tony 
Bowell, freshman 
"My roommate 
and I went to 
Petland and saw 
all the kittens and picked the 
orneriest one." 

Christie Eck, senior in art, said 
she owned a cat before she came to 
college and wanted to keep it. 

"The neighbors didn't seem to 
care at all," she said. "A lot of people 
in our complex had pets." 

Hiding cats was easier than dogs 
because they were less likely to de- 
stroy the apartment, Eck said. 

"My roommate used to have a 
dog, but it got too big and was 
tearing up the apartment," she said. 

The main problem owners said 
they faced was keeping their animals 
hidden from landlords. 

"My landlord caught the cat once, 
but my mom happened to be up 

by ToriNieho_ 

here for the weekend, and I said si 
brought it up to visit," Eck said. 

Hiding the animals from repai 
men also was important, Bowell sai 

"The only problem we had w 
when our repairman came to tl 
complex," she said. "We had i 
hide our cat because we didn't kno 
ifhe would tell our landlord or not 

Although she risked beir 
evicted, Eck said she would rath 
move than give up her cat. 

"If my landlord found out ar 
wouldn't let us keep her, I'd mc 
where I could," Eck said. "I'm n 
going to get rid of her because I' 1 
had her since I was little."

™ ^^ -State families didn't have to search 
far to solve their day-care problems. 
The KSU Child Development Cen- 
ter, located injardine Terrace Apart- 
ments, served 187 children of stu- 
dents, faculty and staff. 

One-year-old to grade-school 
age children participated in the 
center's activities including field trips 
to Sunset Zoo. Activities were de- 
signed to be fun and educational, 
but the care providers were not 
allowed to do any direct teaching. 

"The activities are more hands- 
on, more relaxed and open-ended," 
said Lorna Ford, the center's direc- 
tor and graduate student in human 
development and family studies. 

Cami Mills, graduate student in 
animal science, said she was pleased 
with the care her 17-month-old 
daughter, Emily, received. 

"She needed lots of things to do, 
and she's really learned a lot here," 
Mills said. 

Emily had been in three other 
day cares, but none of them com- 
pared to K-State's, Mills said. 

"The ratio of adults to children is 
much better here," she said. 

Childships, which were funded 
by Student Governing Association's 
Educational Opportunity Fund, 
made up the difference for parents 
who could not meet the monthly 
$200-$400 tuition. Many of the

The center 
was successful in 
filling the need 
for campus child 
care, Ford said. 

"We are here 
to help students,

the community 

and try to find other day cares," she

or the 

ealing with roommates' girlfriends 
or boyfriends who spent the night 
became a way of life for many col- 
lege students. 

"She (roommate's girlfriend) is 
over all the time," said David 
Tschirhart, sophomore in animal 
science. "She comes in yelling, and 
she leaves the television on when 
I'm studying or sleeping." 

But not all roommates were 
enemies with "shackers." Some 
roommates didn't mind it when 
their friends' girlfriends or boyfriends 

stayed at their apartments. 

"We all joke around," said Heath 
Steele, senior in social work. "Ev- 
eryone is welcome here." 

However, some shackers out- 
stayed their welcome. Tschirhart 
said his food disappeared and his 
water and electrical bills increased. 

"She (his roommate's girlfriend) 
lived here," Tschirhart said. "She 
thinks all the food is there for her to 
eat, and I pay for it." 

Some roommates got revenge. 

"My boyfriend's roommate and

I get along except when I pretend 
I'm a mime," saidjacquelyn Pinney, 
senior in human ecology. "He gets 
even with me and puts his clammy, 
icky feet on me." 

Besides the problem of unfriendly 
roommates, shackers also faced the 
danger of being discovered. 

"I was with my boyfriend, and 
we were eating breakfast when the 
doorbell rang," Pinney said. "It was 
his mom. I ran and hid in the bed- 
room under a pile of clothes for an 
hour waiting for her to leave."

about the store," Kanaga said. "It 
gives people who live here (Strong 
Complex) opportunities for em- 
ployment. The prices are fairly low 
— at least they're competitive — 
and they're open late at night." 

The store lured many students 
with its hours of operation. Chris 
Eberwein, Quik Cats employee and 
junior in dietetics, said that although 
the store was open until 1 a.m., it 
was usually busiest around 3 p.m. 
and 8 p.m. 

"I usually shop there in the eve- 
nings," Kanaga said. "I go over to 
the studio, and it's quicker and 
cheaper to go there (Quik Cats) 
than to the Union. I usuallyjust pick 
up something to munch on late at 
night when I'm at the studio work- 

Another bonus for customers and 
employees was the store's location. 

"I've been working here (Quik 

Cats) for two years because it's real 
convenient — it's right here c

For some, the store's locatic 
was the only reason for their fr 
quent shopping sprees. 

"I go there (Quik Cats) abo 
once a week," said Sheik 
McCarthy, freshman in arts and sc 
ences. "I usually go there to mal 
copies and for late-night cravings. 
I didn't live over here (Ford),Iprol 
ably wouldn't stop there, though 

The store offered different typ 
of items, but Andrea O'Neal, juni< 
in kinesiology, limited her purchas 
to junk food and the store's regul 
pop specials. 

"Their food is expensive 
O'Neal said. "If I want noodles ( 
something for the microwave, I g
